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

Description

Starts off by climbing an exposed bouldery section onto a ledge and a small stemming corner. After clipping a couple of bolts move left out of the corner into a steep section. Here the crux is a sustained series of somewhat ponderous moves up and into a second corner system and a rest. The climbing is sustained and steep above the crux on rock that's very granite-like. The angle eases off before the anchor is reached, near the site of occasional bird encounters.

Location

Belay on a flat ledge behind an obvious shady tree. Shares start with the climb "Hail Fire".

Protection

7 bolts to Chain Anchor
