Location: WA : Southeast Cascades & Yakima : Tieton River : The Bend : Bend West : Ambient Domain (5.10c)

Comments: I was intimidated to try this after watching a guy fall near the top, his single cam held him while every piece below zippered out- all nuts. Turns out to be not too hard for 10c. It is a thin, and decent face holds make it possible to stem all the way up, which is good because the gear placing is tricky. There is a harder crux in the last part, probably why he fell.

Comments: Jim, I get really confused with the cracks, anchors, columns at Tieton. Is this the next crack right of Satori, 10b through roof? It has red slings on hangers. We did the one next right- Riptide? very sketchy gear at the bottom, with 10a moves and small roof pull on juggy hold near top, then small technical crack. anchor has cordellete.

Comments: we did the newly cleaned route on left side of Amigos and ta ta's. has bolt where you go on left side of roof, very good crack, maybe 5.9. Whoever is cleaning this give it a name here on MP.

Comments: Also gets my vote for best 10a crack. A 70m rope will get you back to the big ledge by rapping off the MX anchor. We used a 60m, and did some gear clip in down climbing.

Comments: This is an excellent route, prepare for battle at the top out, rest up with some stemming, have .5 camalot ready and go for it. The book says gear to 1.5", there are plenty of places where a #2 and #3 camalot will fit too. tripple in #.5

Comments: Mountain hick,I almost wrote mountainchick, my guess is that Canadians don't really embrace MP. Also it is a variation to the older Liquid Gold, sharing the best 1st and last pitch.

Comments: popular for a good reason, very good route. Fred attempted it this spring, thought it way harder then 5.8, said it was easier before. I asked him when he did it last, could not remember, maybe 20 years ago or more.

Comments: Fred insists that he climbed this with an Austrian guy- hence the name, not with Eric or Don. So I showed him his Leavenworth guide book which Viktor likely copied, he still insists it is wrong, says maybe Eric wrote that.

Comments: I don't think this is any harder then 5.9, and it would probably be 5.8 in Ca.

Comments: Scott, do you mean there is no anchor on top of the pedestal that is the end of jiffy pop? there was before.

Comments: This was an onsight for me years back, seemed really scary more recently. Bolts are further apart then average Vantage sport climb, not R rated, but tricky and heart pumping.

Comments: description here does not mention that you will want some hand size gear for upper 3rd.

Comments: I agree with above assessment, weird bolting, ground fall potential if you don't make the 3rd clip, awkward and harder by 2 grades then Violator.

Comments: we forgot it was left there, the partner let us know, gave us the other guys phone # but also told us he intended to keep it. The other guy probably left so as not to be confronted about a missing cam, and of course did not answer the phone.

Comments: First time in my life we left a cam on this route by mistake. After leading it, i was lowered and unclipped the cam but expected the follower to clean itThe team right after us collected it, when one of them later said that his buddy cleaned it and intended to keep it exclaiming it was fair booty.

Comments: glad to have you comment on this John, I don't know why more people don't do this route, maybe they just don't use MP. As you know I am a slab run-out wimp, but this route is comfortable for me.

Comments: Beware of the 5.9 at exit 38, sometimes harder then a 10a. Or just a bit sketchy for new leaders.

Comments: FA: CP Little. great route, reachy crux, but there are short ways around it still making it more like 10c

A really fun route if you figure out the puzzle at the start.
