Another good crack line. Hands to fingers. Sucks up gear. Was rated 5.9 in the old guidebook.


Just left of Little Known Wonder. Right of Imperial Master. See photo.


Gear to 3.5". Two bolt anchor.

This route always has been and still is 5.9. We are not fans of grade creep out in the Tieton.

I've always thought of this climb as a benchmark for the area - if its harder than Inca Roads its 5.10, if its equal to it or less its not.

This climb is very good and is definitely no harder than 5.9.

This is one of my favorite 5.9 cracks anywhere. The wide part maybe hard if you are short and have small hands, good to double up with cams 2-3" if in doubt of your crack skills.
