Comments: You can place a nut between the second and third bolts if you so desire. This route is quite slick if it is at all wet.

Comments: I have no idea what this horn is that everyone is talking about. I found the last few moves to be the crux, but then I got into the layback and it went really easily. You can sew up the last layback with a blue and yellow tcu if you like. A stopper would also work there.

Comments: Protection: Larger cams near the bottom (2-4 inches) and then one small stopper for the last few feet.

Comments: The crack was full of bird crap. Bushes at the top of the climb are annoying. Lots of loose blocks. Fun to use my hexcentrics, otherwise a bore.

Comments: I believe this climb follows the crack through some jugs to the summit.

Comments: This climb has one 5.10a/b move if you go straight up through the large overhang instead of heading right. The holds are all there, but the move is dynamic and committing.

Comments: There are three bolts heading right from the pitch 2 crux. I am not sure why these huge bolts are there, but I think the climb actually goes straight up. There is also a pin next to the good TCU placement.

Indeed, this is a very serious climb for a 5.8 climber. I would say the first pitch goes at 5.6, it is a pretty serious lead as well, as it traverses with PG gear placements and possible ground fall should your placements fail.

Amazing rappel.

Comments: This is a great route for a hot day, as both belays are shaded.

A #4 camalot protects the 5.5 crux on the first pitch. The crack is somewhat off-width if you stick to it. It is possible to climb to the right of the crack though.

Comments: This is probably my favourite climb at ragged. Intimidating start leads to an excellent wandering route with decent protection and lots of mantling. Try Wetlock if you really want to get your heart pumping!

Comments: There is a fixed pin on the second pitch right hand side which is only available in early season. This is a great pitch for a beginning leader.

Comments: I actually feel the crux of this climb to be getting through the rock bulges at the top to the anchors. There is no gear to be found around here. Would anyone mind the placing of a piton to make this a lot safer?

Comments: Went up to the Crypt yesterday.

Timberline: Still in, not too much snow filling it in yet.

Cold Storage: Looked better than on Thursday, probably thin but climbable.

The Crypt: In, but you might want to wait a bit to let it re-form.

Great day out yesterday, very windy! There were tons of people in the gorge.

Comments: We were all over Glacier Gorge and the Loch yesterday, thanks to some creative route finding. Here's a report:

All Mixed up: Still IN, but there is an ominous snow pile forming at the top of the last Pitch.

Timberline falls: This is what we climbed, and it is two excellent pitches of ice right now. The lower section was a little bit thin and brittle, but it took 10cm screws. The top section had a layer of crappy ice above a layer of stout ice, so watch out if you are throwing chunks at yo... more >>
