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

Description

This short and easy climb extends Shute-Mills, New Tradition and other climbs that share the same anchors via a second pitch to the anchor above The Chief and War Party. Above the anchor atop Shute-Mills there are two vertical cracks. Climb the left crack about 20' (5.6) and finish on a 35' low-angle slab (class 4). Rappell from the anchor down the route or a free rappel down the back side into the notch (note: you can easily set up a top-rope for The Chief and War Party from the anchor).

Location

Starts at the top of Shute-Mills (and other climbs to the left).

Protection

A few small to medium cams in the short crack; the slab can be protected by a small cam or two in pockets, but it is very easy. Three bolts at anchor.

Curious to know how hard the left crack would be, I led it on May 19, 2013. Presumably someone else had climbed it earlier. May 19, 2013
