Starting up the steep start to get to that amazing...
One of the finest sport routes in all of the Red, and for that matter, anywhere. That is the reason for my choice for it to be the first one I went back for upon 'homecoming' in Y2K. The name is a great coincidence.
Climb an easy face past a few bolts and move out left onto a steep arete in the sun. Climb past perhaps 10 bolts to the anchors on smaller holds than are common in the red, using the arete frequently for hands and heals.
At the far left end of Emerald City, this steep and tall arete beckons- climb it! This is the last bolted route to the left on this crag.
Nine bolts, plus the anchors.

This route is the best 11c I've done! Super exposed, wasn't any chalk on it when I climbed it (making it very tricky), and there was some strong winds to add to the excitement.
Used up EVERY INCH of a 60m rope to lower.

standout route: one for the "best of the Red" lists

So good. This route deserves all of the stars it gets. Great exposure, fun moves, and one poorly placed bolt adds to the spice of the route. So, so, so good.

By far my favorite 11c of the Gorge, first bolt is a bit of a stretch but follow through SUPER EXPOSED, very tall route full 60m needed 70m is ideal.

Gobs of exposure. Loved every second of this thing. Beautiful view from the top. No R rating to this climb.

This climb is scary, hard.......fun, long, exposed, and on of the best routs I've ever been on!! I'd say the run-out to the first bold is a good 30ft. or so, which was quite scary but rewarding. Probably the best route in the RED.

Amazing route! Great exposure, fun moves and perfect rock.... Felt soft for the grade.... Nothing R rated about it. You can bring gear to protect run-out leading to the first high bolt if you so desire.
