Comments: Please do not rappel the route unless it's midweek/night and you have the route completely to yourself.

The Avalanche Gulch descent can be quickly and safely descended with an 80 meter rope or double ropes even when there is a unstable snowpack. With an 80 or longer you can stay on rappel and or tied in for every section that is exposed to avalanching. If the danger is low the gulch can be easily descended with a single 60.

Comments: if you're a confident 5.10 climber just bring draws. the few natural pieces of protection I placed on this climb were jingus. It's a fun one, and not all that runout without a rack. next time I'd bring 12 or so draws.

Comments: I thought the crux of P1 was around the second bolt, it's a long way in between the good jams in pinscars and the feet are non existent. A good one to do if you're up there.

Comments: chimney pitch was cool, everything else was pretty mediocre. If I did it again I'd leave the rope at home.

EDIT: drove up the canyon today in between classes partnerless and soloed it twice. way more fun than with the rope, 2nd go took a leisurely 20 minutes. highly recommend going up it alone on a weekday, didn't see anyone.

Comments: Can't wait to get back to washington to do this again. One of the best routes of the grade anywhere.

Comments: with a 70 you can make it to the top from the stance above the 10d crux pitch. fantastic route.

Comments: you probably want crampons to go along with the ice ax. that snow pitch off the col is pretty damn steep.

Comments: blow it going for the final jug on this one at the end of a hot and humid day, the subsequent 30 footer you'll take will get you going for the hike out.

Comments: looked at this today, the sloping ledge 30 feet above sharp flakes scared us off. is there a easier way to get up? also, how many people solo the 5.10 direct start? getting into the route looked super sketch

Comments: how scary is the offwidth without a #5? is it secure enough to (basically) rope solo? I don't climb many offwidths but I'm trying to get my skills up. I don't want to spend a ton of money on a piece of gear I'll only use once.

Comments: it's a DWS. I'm not familiar with DWS ratings but wanted to make it clear to any DWS hopefulls that it's not a good place to "try it out" I'll remove it if it really matters. for what it's worth I think it's a fantastic route with big air, if your up for it go for the solo! it'd be a proud accomplishment. I want to get it wired before I give it a go sans rope.

Comments: that's the way I went (the chimney) one move of 5.7 protected by a #1 camalot, fixed gear (2 or so welded cams) lower down on the route.

Comments: are you sure that's 10a? the feet are good and you can muscle through it without much problems, staying right around that flake seems like it would be more strenuous and insecure. the crux (I think) is the crack 20+ feet above this, there you have to jam deep in the crack for 10 feet or so to a set of good jugs. thoughts?
