Comments: Yeah, it's a fun pitch. I've done it a few times now.

You can see part of the 2nd pitch to Law and Order on the right. When cleaned up, that should be a blast as well.

Ben, you might check out the arete on Derek's right (left, from our view). It might go. At the top where it is really blunt, a crack goes up and right.

Looks dangerous, yet attractive.

Comments: About kike's question, I am assuming it is about the outside, above the ground.

People have been doing the traverse for decades. In the late 70s, my climbing class instructor took us there to traverse. So, technically legal or not, traversing it is probably not going to be noticed.

Comments: Curtveld - the name change sounds good to me. If the main developers here are OK with it, I'll make the change.

Comments: Interesting how the dirt collects on the ridges and cusps on the ceiling, just like it does when underfoot.

Comments: Geoff, do you mean the flake on Rice Krispies?

I don't think it is off. Sounds like an impressive way to go.

Comments: About the tuna, do you mean this one and Dr Sniff?

I don't know if the similarity is a coincidence or not. I had nothing to do with either name. Bobcats, on the other hand, is definitely an Index theme...

Comments: Preying Mantel fell down. Rather scary to think about, but I think it was always thought to be barely there.

Be careful leaving your car here. People enjoy breaking windows and stealing valuables from cars left on Chuckanut (even in daylight hours).

Comments: Seeing the orientation, it looks like it would be good for a morning climb in the cooler months and good as an evening climb in the summer.

It's hard to beat the easy access.

Comments: Great job Ben!

For decades, I have looked over at the upper part of this route and imagined doing the moves. But hearing about Greg Olsen working on it a long time ago make me think it was way too hard, so I never ventured. Still is probably too hard for me, but it helps to know it now goes.

I never thought about the lower half. That part looks fun too.

Comments: I've been meaning to, as it looks like a nice moderate.
And the formation it is on seems to have other good possible routes.

The star rating I gave it came from the rcnw forum.

Comments: I wouldn't say invalid, as I can imagine TRing a highball boulder problem like this and calling it an ascent.

It might be more bold with only one pad though.

Did the "sword" name predate the FA by Larry Petterman? If not, we should correct the name.

Comments: I like the video. Great climbing and camerawork.

The upper finger crack looks really nice. Makes me want to get up there.

Please get a video of Keith's Crack -- I want to go do that one too (but might need some beta)!

Comments: Best UTW route I've done yet.

Parties often aid the third pitch to get to the ultra-classic 4th, but it is certainly worth it to do just the first one or two pitches.

You do not need a 70-m rope if you hike off, which is easy to do. From the end of the 4th pitch, the climbing to the top is relatively clean, solid, and easy.

Comments: Thanks Brent for the update.

I put you in on the FA. By the way, I've not heard of this practice of putting a red tag on the first bolt. Sounds like a good idea for projects.

Comments: Thanks Geoff.

I'm not sure about the mention of DEET in the description of "Protection". I've never noticed many bugs there, certainly no more than elsewhere. It might be a joke, a reference to the wall's name "Wall of 10,000 insects".
