Tower 3 is the higher or most westward tower before approaching Main Hellgate. As with the entire area, some people are put off by the chauky limestone that prevails. For others, a Hellgate love affair begins with the first visit.

Always wear your helmet....even walking around at the base of these cliffs. Become cognizant of what and who is above you.

Starting off easy, this route immediately gets down to business after the second bolt. What looks to be a rather harmless face, turns out to be a rather brutal kick in the teeth. Mon Ami is a delicate line, and by delicate I mean deteriorating. Climb up an amazing system of small pockets and smears passing two distinct cruxes, catch a...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
