So does anyone here have firsthand experience on it? It's been a dream route of mine for a long time, but there is virtually no info on it anywhere other than a short blurb or two in some climbing guides and a few online hits.

I know it's got a reputation as burly, scary and dangerous, but I'd like to know more than that, and I'd like to hear/talk with someone who has done it. Any help?

The routes on the Willis wall don't get done much, as they have extremely high objective danger, and are basically steep screefests of shitty rock (as in terrible climbing, do not qualify as dream routes). Thermogenesis is snow, but still, why would you want to climb it? much better routes in the north cascades that are actually worth doing and aren't just a extended game of russian roulette.

Over the years, there have been some discussions about it at cascadeclimbers, but I think this route fits under the category of "If you have to ask..." Eric Fjellanger

Keenan, it looks like a beautiful line. I know there are lots of beautiful lines out there, I just find it appealing.

Eric, I'd figured I get some of that type of response, thanks for not disappointing.
