Mt. St. Helena Crags - Fire Damage from Fall 2017 Details

Description

Start in the crack alcove. Climb the left wall to a large cobble, then transfer onto the steep pillar above. The "Thank God" cobble quickly gives way to steep jug hauling on awesome features.

Location

Far right side of the fan'ish slab and the beginning of the steeper portion of the Iron Curtain.

Protection

8 bolts

Climb gingerly is right. Hearing the draw clinking on the hollow-sounding cobble as you yard on it does not instill confidence. Especially since you're pulling on the cobble in the direction of your belayer. Tread lightly. Feb 24, 2014

When the "thank god" cobble comes out (and it is hard to believe that it won't), the belayer and climber will be lucky if they don't get jacked up. Climb gingerly. Nov 1, 2013
