Comments: 5.10b??? So has anyone done this lately? I'm thinking more like 10c/d, but what do I know. Looking for some confirmation or controversy. Let me know what you think.

Comments: I don't know how grovelly it was in 95' but it can't have gotten any better. As a matter of fact I don't know if it's had another ascent since then. I had to come down half way up due to the gear loops on my harness catching on chossy flakes and preventing upward progress. Some flakes were attached with no visible means of support. I'll try it again with an alpine harness without gear loops. It's a very tight squeeze for those who seek out such features.

Comments: I'm sure it's been done before but I couldn't find any record of it. Probably no taller than Zig Zag finish, and certainly easier, but it's just off the trail and well... it's a good warm up or cool down in a super convenient location just feet from Lunch Rock. Interesting moves especially at the start. Get on it.

Comments: When I led this it wasn't particularly clean as it was filled with dirt and debris. That aside, this is a nice crack that protects like a dream. Mostly fingers and thin hands. It should get more traffic. Perhaps if it was longer and the top was a bit more convenient.

Comments: Nice route with a lots of interesting moves including a little bushwacking. To me some of the moves below the roof seemed harder than 5.5. Turning the left side of the roof is pretty fun and totally solid.

Comments: I led this yesterday and thought it had a high fun/vertical foot factor though sadly it is too short. But, heck if you're in the area anyway after having topped out on another route I'd recommend jumping on it. Why not?

Comments: Okay, I led this yesterday and really enjoyed it. I'm not sure I went the correct way, as the route I took seemed a bit stiff for 5.7. Looking at Ed's picture of the climber on top of the blocks, well I climbed the chimney and then took the crack shown to the right of the climber to the top of the blocks. Also, getting established on the knob-filled face above seemed a bit stiff for 5.7. Once on the face however the climbing was straight forward and fun with all the knobs and chicken heads. ... more >>

Comments: Nice route! Led this yesterday on an incredibly nice day for mid-Feb. A somewhat awkward approach crack leads to the amazing corner. Protects like a dream with placements everywhere and anywhere. Go do it and have fun.

Comments: I rope soloed this Sunday and was like... dude what's all the fuss about? That is until I got to where the crack thins out and then I was left slapping the rounded arete to the right and trying to tweak my left hand into the crack and thrutch my way to better holds at the horizontal. But the fun isn't over yet. Whew! This one is pretty weird. 5.9? I say no way, but what do I know. Rope soloing to me always seems harder.

Comments: Did this route last week and enjoyed it. A couple puzzling moves at the second bolt lead to a somewhat powerful move past the last bolt. The climbing past the 3rd bolt may be a little intimidating for the noobie leader so a couple of cams might ease the fright factor.

Comments: I took a different take on this and made a high initial step and stuck. It's probably 10+ alright, and a fun problem to mess around on especially if the day is cold since this is a nice, sunny area which is usually protected from the wind.

Comments: The top face is crap for protection so you might as well just solo it. Most will totally discount this route, but I am one of those black hearted rogues who like this kind of craziness!

Comments: Came in from the left past the first bolt which might have made it a grade easier, but the top section is no gimme. Probably solid 11. Secret is like the submitter suggested.... just palm the sucker like a big basketball and you'll probably hang on.... that is...if you have the energy!

Comments: I agree that the moves past the second bolt are more like 5.9. Nice route though, but make sure your leader is comfortable at the grade.

Comments: Recently did this route and I see that I made the mistake that TJ warned about with regard to going high and relying on a loose flake for protection. I suspect that way is quite intuitive so just realize that doing the traverse and roof may have to be done with essentially no pro. The climbing is fairly mellow up there, but use a light technique so as not to pull any loose stuff off of which there seems to be an abundance. Too bad cause it's quite fun climbing.

Comments: Nice little route. At the top one can choose to follow the crack or go up good knobs and exit on the face. Fairly good protection.

Comments: I agree with Jason in that this seems stout for a 5.6. Protection is a bit tricky to arrange down low.

Comments: Led this years ago and I can confirm that this is pretty stout for the grade. A great route to be sure, just be aware that the climbing is somewhat sustained. I can still remember all these years later how much fun the little roof section was. Have fun.

Comments: I climbed this after a full day of rain which I think tipped it over to the unpleasant side of the fun/hard work dividing line. Many of the holds were still pretty wet and slimy. I'd like to do it again on a dry day. Either way this is a beautiful area to spend some time.

Comments: Climbed this a couple of weeks ago and found it an enjoyable route. We went astray on the second pitch and climbed to up to the left of the top of the first pitch. I believe that the correct strategy is to climb up to a bit of a ramp/traverse and move right over into the corner system. The 3rd pitch is fun and way casual. Nice views of NEWS and Cascades high country from the summit.

Comments: Climbed this a couple of weeks ago and I really enjoyed it. the climbing is fine, but nothing really special, but the setting, scenery, views and location.....that's what make this route spectacular. It is probably closer to 5.5 than 5.6.

Comments: Not sure what the deal is here. Is the crack allowed? If so how much can you use it? Seemed contrived to me at least without more beta on the actual route.
