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

Description

A fun, pocketed route that starts slightly left of the fall line from the anchors and moves up towards a mangy flaring crack. The start exposes you to the potential of swinging; once you're through the area with the crack it's a quick jog to the top. See route #12 on page 23 in "Rock Climbing the San Francisco Bay Area" (Tresa Black, 2002).

Location

As you come to The Far Side, swing right and follow a dirt/scree trail up about 100 feet. Take the trail heading up and left. This route is on the face opposite War Party and The Chief. To set the top rope, continue up the initial trail another 30 feet and head left up a washed out path. From the top of this path you can scramble to the top of the formation with the anchors and set the rope from there.

Protection

Two bolts with quick links at the top, about 2 feet apart from each other. If you're building an anchor on these to extend over the small edge, bring a cordelette of at least 35 feet long.

We tried to find this route but couldn't. Any information would be helpful. The Far Side just has so much rock that's spread out, location/directions gotta be more specific. Apr 18, 2016
Perhaps it's the face climb left of Old Tradition or a direct start on the face below the overhang of Old Tradition? Sep 15, 2016
