    Needs to get climbed a bit to clean up; it will improve with age.

    Not sure how much this side gets climbed. I broke a foothold off up top at the crux, and my buddy who climbed second was trundling golf ball to cantaloupe sized rocks from the tree up top (see the photo I uploaded). Do not veer to far left of the route. Other than those shenanigans this route had really varied, enjoyable climbing. Pockets, crimps, side pulls, and underclings make up for the spots of questionable rock.

    So it was 9 years ago that I posted the comment that it needed more traffic to clean up, and it would improve with age. Guess we need to give it another 10 years. Got to love Hellgate.
