3 out of 5 stars Good 5.7 over solid Rock.

From the parking lot, take the main trail to the outlook. Turn right. After a few minutes, there is a secondary trail that leads to a lot. You can down climb the left side of this slot, which is called Alfred's Gully. Descend here. Go right. Walk past Alfred's Wall (bolts everywhere). Pass the Central Gully Area.You will come to a prominent buttress. The middle of the buttress has an overhand. The left side of this buttress has a left facing corner. The base of this corner has a yellow painted '6.' This is Helmut's. The route itself goes over solid rock. The climber must make a traverse right to get to the anchors. This is a good quality trad route.

5 out of 5 stars Great route. Superb top-out.

One of the best top outs I've seen at Nemo. The route is nice and stiff most of the way up too making for a great climb.

WOOOO WEEEE!!! This was one fun route! There is a major money move about 10meter up. Pull it and youre a rick man. Beautiful juggy overhang near topout.
