Not enough endurance...whip! From the lip.

Bitten 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  WA : Northeast Corner & Spokane : ... : The Main Wall
I haven't climbed the whole thing, so I'm poaching Mike Phillips' description: Classic endurance line up basalt jugs to the 'Piano Keys' and the epic boulder finish out the roof where every hold has a name: the mono, the mailslot, the funnel, the roof jug...This is also a great route for the 5.11 climber up to the 8th bolt. Juggy and fun with some decent rests in a cool dihedral. Draws are hung on it so you can bail below the crux without leaving gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

My girlfriend and I just recently moved to Northport, Washington. We have been setting up new routes on the property that we live on and also enjoying the great routes at China Bend. If anyone would be interested in climbing or collaborating, I would love to get in touch.

Climb up to 5.13 but love climbing any grade.

Cheers,
Blake Rockhill
