  • As for all Hellgate areas
  • Park your car off of the main canyon road.

  • Description (2 cruxes) 

    Arm and Hammered is a little burl-fest that tackles a series of roofs on the face of Tower 1.

    Start with scrambling moves up a corner to a chest-height roof that can be bypassed to the right (as evidenced by the amount of chalk there, WEAKSAUCE) or tackled straight on using a tough sequence involving pinches and hidden slick feet. Once established, expect more of the same through the next couple of bulgy cruxes, culminating in some WTF insecure moves by a pine tree. Take a breath there and manage the pump through the more spaced out last couple of bolts.
    Establish on the ramp, take a look at the 2nd pitch of Cheap Thrills, consider claiming the bail biner up there then decide against it and lower from the widely separated chain anchors.


    Location 

    A&H can be found about 15' to the right of Cheap Thrills (see Ruckmans), a route easily recognizable by a steep white right-facing dihedral with a lone bolt in the middle.
    A steep broken gully/trough sits to the immediate right of A&H and the route brushes against a short sturdy pine growing about halway up this trough.


    Protection 

    7 bolts to a 2-bolts chain anchor.

    Cryptic moves on steep slopers with some slippery feet on really solid rock. One of the best sport routes on this wall - definately worth doing.

    Anyone know what the 2nd pitch of this is? The anchor was a lone bolt, so we donated a locker.
    And, no, I aint gonna buy a guide from IME. Just spill it.

    2nd pitch is probably P2 of Cheap Thrills. I seem to remember 2 bolt + chain anchor, weird...

    Great crimps with a variety of side pulls and slopey feet.
