sunset session - Adam Wilkins

Park your car off of the main canyon road.

Description 

Awesome movement on somewhat dirty limestone. With more traffic this would clean up and be a 5 star route, I would advise a helmet for your belayer as you will encounter loose rock on the initial 30 feet, and smaller rock on the bulk of it. One of the most aesthetic lines at Hellgate.

Location 

Altaworld buttress, up the hill to the northwest of the Clamshell, look for the prominent arete with the large roof.

Protection 

8 bolts to biners on chains

This spectacular route was put up by Bill Hunt, the "Mayor" of Hellgate. Mid to late 90s I believe.
