This climb is in the Main slide path of Hellgate proper to the left of the 400' main wall (Fossils from Hell). There is a Martinez .11a just the right of Weirdo. There are several older routes out there as well which is evidenced by the old buttonheads around. It feels like you are in an amphitheater when you are in this area. An amphitheater at the bottom of a pinball machine. When rocks fall here they ping from rock fin to rock wall and back again as they make their way toward you, with some disappearing completely and some causing extreme bowel discomfort.
To the right of "Fossils from Hell" is "Devil Goat", a (3 or 4 pitch)Zach G. route.
