Jen figures out Hell is for Children

  • As for all Hellgate areas
  • Park your car off of the main canyon road.
  • Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    If you've never been to the Hellgate before, or if you're new to limestone climbing, this is a good place to warm up. The first bolt is under a small roof just right of the corner. The next bolt is a few feet above and to the right. Climb the slab over good rock to the anchor.


    Right of Bollocks is a face with bolts. This is Hell is for Children.


    5 bolts to chains

    Hellgate Highway was occupied, which was a first for me having someone on a Main Hellgate route at the same time I was up there:) we visited the Hell is For Children Area (another first for Franziska and me) is quite good and it was heart warming to do a route by some genuine 90's era Alta locals Danny Caruso (now a long time living and skiing in Davos, Switzerland) and Bill Hunt, aka the King of Hellgate...both of whom I haven't seen in ages and miss a ton!
    Nathan's fun additions are also nice, safe, and secure and worth a visit...will have to get in line for HH.
