Jack just past the pumpy initial slots of "Xin" a 7 Mile classic

Xin 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- E4 6a  WA : Northwest Region : ... : 7 Mile Rock
Start this awesome pitch with some steep lie backing on a seemingly solid flake through a slot and bulge. Sustained climbing by-passes a thin seam via rightward hand traverse and some pumpy moves, eventually gaining a ledge below a chimney. A short grovel through the chimney and then some more airy climbing and you will arrive at the anchors. A physical climb that will get your heart thumping. First bolt is in soft rock so back it up ASAP....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
