|Seasonal Raptor Closure April 1-July 31 at Midnight & Noontime Rock MORE INFO >>>|
The name of a route may be an encapsulation of the type of climbing encountered or emotions evoked during an ascent. While pulling into the wide crack / chimney at the roof and securing myself with a knee bar, thoughts of being devoured by a unseen entity crept into my mind. Because the crack is quite wide this route may be easier to climb in hiking boots with vibram soles.
Begin in a dihedral just around the corner from a bolted face to crack climb (Twilight Zone) on the Dead End Ledge and continue straight up through the overhanging roof that is left of Easter Overhang. Rappel from the ROTC / Stevens Pass Motel anchors back to the Dead End Ledge in two rappels.
Cams to 5" or Big Bros to supplement the ancient 1/4" bolts with aluminum hangers or steel rings. Cams / medium stoppers are also necessary for an anchor.
