Got on this last summer. Bailed at the top of P13 because we ran out of water (it was 90 degrees) and the rental car was due back at 5PM. Would love to get back and send this thing properly.

The crux for us (besides running out of water) was the approach. Leave ample time to find the start of the route.

We had no trouble finding the route. We made it to the base in 45 min. The trail is pretty beat in. If it wasn't for those 5.0 pitches half way up this would be such a great route. The chossiness of those pitches really bring it down. Took us 14 hours car to car.

Could someone indicate why this route is 'R' rated? Is it because of the extremely run-out low fifth class pitches?

It is "R" rated because you literally climb 200 feet without a bolt over super chossy although easy terrain. Every move harder than 5.7 is well protected.

Like many other people we got lost in the chossy section. The intermediate anchor is directly above the first bush WITH slings (80'). It isn't visible from any direction until you're about 15 feet away. From the anchor below the choss to the intermediate is > 200'.

Looking for information on the road closure:

www.wta.org/signpost/road-closures-on-the-middle-fork-snoqua>>>

Do you now, if so desired, could you hike (yeah 12 mile approach) or bike in? Has anyone been in there to investigate, see if access is still possible during the week (I'm one of those Sat-Mon work week kind of people?

Thanks,
Chris
