BETA PHOTO: The leftmost of the routes on the cliff
The long, single pitch wall on the right. Mostly columnar basalt with numerous vertical crack systems. The climbs are mostly vertical, continuous (albeit short), and solid. The routes are named in accordance to the belay stake in front (or nearest) them; so ("stake 2" is in front of the 2nd belay stake from the right. See the beta photos for details.
After entering Hell's Gate National Park, this is the low
wall on the right (not far from the park entrance) encountered before getting to Fischer's Tower. Park along the dirt road and walk (100 meters) to the cliff base. The climbs are marked with belay stakes, and the anchor webbing can be viewed from the road.

Start below the deep corner with a wide crack on the right-hand wall. Follow the thin crack in the corner for 25 feet until the crack begins to break up; follow the broken crack system straight up to anchors at 50 feet. Anchors = two hammered pitons, good webbing, two rapid-links. Good pro for trad. No fixed pro on climb. ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
