Wild Kippers ascends positive and quite sharp rock for two bolts to some huge pockets at a horizontal. Move up into a shallow groove and the third bolt. Climb through the groove, right of the bolts, through the crux to another good horizontal. Traverse left up through an off-set crack to shared anchors with Sockeye, the 5.10 route left of Wild Kippers.


As you approach Fish Wall, you'll pass an unknown route up a slightly north-facing wall. 25 feet beyond this unknown route is a panel of rock with two routes on it that is dark and sharp down low and smooth and tan up high. Wild Kippers is the right route of these two.


5 bolts to a shared anchor with Sockeye to the the left.

CLEAN YOUR ROUTE! I pulled off 2 softball-size rocks on the bolt line that SHOULD NOT have been there. Take some pride in putting up routes.

Agreed, still a little bit of cleaning to be done on this one, but I think it will end up being a good route though.

Still lots of loose stuff around this route. Belayers, beware! We knocked off several small and medium-sized rocks that could have done some serious damage.

Sad to see people complaining that rock is rock. It is not all bomber nor screwed in like holds in a gym. Test your holds like a real climber and learn to be outside.
