Comments: First time climbing here today. Great route, but has a couple seriously corroded bolts in the upper section, ala "Calling Wolfgang" at Earwax. Either way, I can't believe I hadn't been to WWII until today. Really fun climbing and no crowds.

Comments: This went free a couple years ago at 13b, I think, so please, no nailing if you want to aid it...

Comments: I have heard people say this feels burly now: Ben, Jesse and I were out there last fall and broke both the left hand thumb catch near the lip and a nice foot for rocking over onto the slab. It definitely felt harder after that. Sorry!

Comments: FYI there is an online guide (incomplete but a good place to start) here:

Comments: Thanks to the years of effort of the Access Fund, the Washington Climbers Coalition and the great National Park Service staff, Newhalem is once again open for new routes!!
The above parties in conjunction with the Vertical World climbing team, the Wilderness Society and the Washington Trails Association just built a new trail to a new mega cliff just down the road. Walk down and check it out and bring your new-routing mojo! There is a decade's worth of potential in this gorge and years of new r... more >>

Comments: Fun route. There is a 5.8 second pitch then a fun and tricky 11c third pitch which could use a little cleaning.

Comments: Is this the same as the Boxcar Arete in Kelly's new guide? Cool problem, if that's the same one...

Comments: Went and got on this last weekend - the good pinch is gone. Real bummer. Definitely makes it harder to set up for moving to the left sidepull for the throw. Still fun, and a little more challenging.

Comments: The original finishing jug broke. Now you have to stall on a crimp where the jug used to be and go again to a higher jug. It's probably more fun that way anyway.

Comments: Consensus does seem to be around 9ish, though I heard the pinch just broke on it. Weird - it seemed solid to me. Who knows - maybe harder or easier now. Fun problem, though! check out this vid of Kelly doing it:

Comments: Whoa, did you send this rig, Gabe? I thought it was pretty rugged for a 9, anyway. Definitely 10ish. And the landing is a little tricky. You definitely want a spot - I turned my ankle by hitting the tree after blowing off going for the jug. Very fun problem, stays pretty dry, and seemed waaaay easier in low humidity conditions. That said, I sure as hell didn't send it...

Comments: GREAT problem. Gave it 3 stars instead of 4 only because of the need to avoid scraping your ass on the ground. Like Bachar Cracker in Yosemite, but a bit harder.

Comments: Super fun. Went up there Jan 6, 2007 after 2" of rain the day before and this problem and others on equinox were dry. So nice.

Does anyone know what the problem is immediately to the right using the bad slopey left hand and the gnarly right hand pinch to high step and big pull to jug on left?

Know if the sit start has gone?

Comments: This route is total carnage. Sooo good, but the pitches are HARD, and the approach is exhausting bushwhacking if you do it wrong. It's not rated like Squamish or the valley - way stiffer. The "5.8" chimney above the 5.12 "crux" is so much harder than anything on the route.

But it is worth doing if only for the long 5.11 dihedral (11b/c?). No stopper moves, but zero rests for 190 feet of tight hands in a steep corner. Spectacular.

Bring a 3.5 Camalot, 1 #3 (two might be nice, though... more >>

Comments: I noticed yesterday that the jug you clip the first bolt from is loose. If this thing ever breaks, you and your belayer are screwed, so heads up.

Comments: Great route, really tricky to onsight. Deserves way more traffic, as it is much more thought provoking than Abo or Psychowussy.
