Comments: I was talking to someone and we agree that there used to be a route called Black Market with 5 bolts more spread out then usual X38 routes, with anchor below roofs above. About mid way between Side Dish and Jiffy Pop, maybe we climbed it around 2002.

Comments: Did this up to Astro yesterday. We knew the upper pitches are supposed to be better, but we were so discouraged by the first four pitches that we bailed and did the NN Arete. This is coming from someone that doesn't mind a new route with some adventure. This start feels like a unfinished project, still needing a lot of cleaning.Maybe we were just tired and intimidated by the Wide pitches above. Will have to go back, but maybe by Astro ledge.

Comments: 2nd belay anchor missing nut on one bolt, hanger hanging on chain off one bolt. I was not carrying those kinds of nuts to fix it. We backed up first rap with cam, then I rapped off one bolt- not a big deal really.

Nice route, was wet and dirty, but good climbing. I would say it is 10a, except for the two bolt protected moves, first one 10b/c face, 2nd on 2nd pitch 10d(this move can be easily aided). 3rd pitch is 10a.

Comments: In 2009 we did a 2nd pitch that follows finger cracks up slab to the right of Tool Time. Follows a RFC dihedral that is really good, however dirty and some loose rocks, maybe 5.8. Also uses the Tool Time anchor.

Comments: It would be bold to climb this with no gear. The lower run-out is pretty easy but takes good medium gear,There is a hard move between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. the upper crux feels like 10b and really run-out without a #4 after the 5th bolt.

Comments: I promise I am not being snarky by saying that this is a nice route. I still consider it 5.9. and I am generally a wimp with run-outs, seemed ok.

Comments: I don't think anyone mentions it here, but that 1st pitch variation that is all bolted on the arete to the left is 10c called 2 Rats and a Titmouse, and has 2 spots with widely spaced bolts that also happen to be the thin crux moves. I happen to like the crack all the way to the belay- it is very nice IMO.

An excellent route, makes you think.

Comments: This is an excellent route, one of my favorite 5.8 routes in Leavenworth. As of 2009 there are two new routes either side of this.

Comments: All good quality. Good for when it is rainy up canyon, often dry around here up to Careno, same for early season snow, drys out first here.
Beware of the 3 leaf poison ivy at base of climbs.

Comments: BradcCook- I don't know about a trailer, maybe out on the Spit.
Alan Moles- we have been camping on the Mamquam forest service road, be prepared for loud fast trucks and much dust. But quite overnight.

Comments: how can an illegal clearcut like this happen in such a high profile area? Was there a fine? I was there soon after and did not realize it was illegal. There again this weekend and marveled at the 6' tall ferns.

Comments: Agreed, funny how there is such a concentration of activity in this little valley. The corridor forces the highway, railway, shipping, logging, tourism including us climbers into one messy stew of noise and yet it is still quite beautiful. I don't know when this was filled in , but where you are standing in this picture used to be tide flats in the bay in the 1990's.

Comments: Pitch 1) FA: Peter Croft, Jim Campbell, Allen Tate, 1979. 5.9
Pitch 2-4) FA: Fred Beckey, Jim Sinclair, 1966. 10c A1
I climbed this in 2012 with the middle finger crack on pitch 3, and the right crack on the 4th pitch, which I thought was the last pitch of Rainy Day Woman, but that is further right. The original BE finish is the chimney, but the right side crack is great.
Returned early this June and did the Pitch 3 stem box variation which is awesome.

Comments: Approach:
There is no fixed rope above Princely/ Champions.
If you topped out Beak, Beak you would find a fixed line above St. Francis ledge.

Comments: this route has a height dependent crux near the top, if you are tall it is still pretty crimpy, pumpy but like 10a-b. If you are say under 5' 11" it is pretty blank and 10c.

Comments: you could get in cams up high if wanted, looks like the anchor was intended for walk off, someone added a quick link to one of the bolts.

Comments: This is a really good 5.8 crack, interesting climbing, protects well. Surprisingly hard near the start so be sure to protect crack well.
