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


This steepening dihedral offers fun stemming up a pocketed corner that will get you a little pumped. Gear is a bit tricky to place and the crux is right toward the top. Belay on the ledge above at a two bolt anchor.


On the lower, west facing wall past Boneless Chicken Ranch and Seymore Frishberg. Scramble around the corner from those routes. The first big corner is "Lichen It" (5.8-), the next corner is "The Farthing" Belay from above. Walk up and off to the left to get back down. Long slings to TR.


One each cams, fingers to #2 Camalot, plus one #4 cam. Belay on ledge above at a two bolt anchor.

We liked this route more than Lichen It. The protection is solid but it takes time to find good placements. A double-bolt anchor about 15' beyond the top provides the best anchor. May 5, 2014
Glad you got on them Floyd. I think Jerry recently added the anchor.

Don't miss top roping the faces to the left of each of these corner/crack climbs. really fun. May 22, 2014
