Description 

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.


Getting There 

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.

A very well protected “sport” lead; Good for beginning leaders. Begin on a series of delicate moves on the right-hand face of the shallow corner. Use both the crack in the corner and the right-hand face and aręte to move up past three hammered pitons and five aid bolts to anchors on top of aręte (not visible from ground). Anchor = one bolt hanger, two fixed pins, good webbing, and two biners. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
