Comments: From my understanding of this area's orogeny, most of the rock on Washington is quartzite or schist, not granite. Anyways, it's frictiony and has that nice alpine feel. The descent of the Huntington Ravine trail can be accomplished onsight with some seriously exposed 3rd classing and would be a terrible option if moist. But, it was dry the day that we did it, and is doable if you have energy left from the climb. Again: The Huntington Ravine trail is a... more >>

Comments: This is a difficult and slippery climb. Make sure you get warmed up and have a good belay. The second Vee has a nasty surprise. Surely a deserving of the "Cathedral +" rating along with all the others at this old-school cliff.

Comments: The downclimb: if you end up belaying while standing on choss, you don't do the 2nd pitch for whatever reason, and perhaps the wall is festooned with many parties including a party on the OTH bolts, then there is a terrible choss traverse and downclimb waiting for you.

The terrible part is more about knocking rocks off than it is technical difficulty, but the technical downclimb moves are very exposed, and the poor trees are all dead. Please be careful of others down below, ... more >>

Comments: I went this way, left of the easier and standard path, first and got decent gear (above the climber, at the same level as the upper shadow corner) but then was looking at an insecure 10-ish face-mantel move with gear below my toes and death if that gear blew...so I downclimbed and went the standard way.

Don't go right of the upper corner unless you climb 11, like gear puzzles, and have a good partner.

Comments: Haha, truly the Reppy's of Boulder problems, this one really does make you feel good inside. Fun, sustained, tricky top out, bullet stone.


Location: NH : *Cannon Cliff : 2. Duet Area etc : Raven Crack (5.9+)

Comments: The money pitch is 4 stars for sure....just make sure the lower crack is dry before you decide it'll be a nice 5.9 lead. More like solid 10 when the lower of the two right angling cracks is wet through the crux after the (awesome) chimney moves. Great gear in the dry upper crack means it stays safe in this condition, just bloody hard at 9

Comments: The problem with Raven Crack I found was that even in mid august, after a dry spell, the critical lower crack near the climber's foot was wet and slimy. This makes the climb way harder than 5.9, IMO. But it's a super awesome line.

Comments: Replaced the super old micro nuts (with rusted and frayed cables) at the terrible tat anchor at the top of the corner. If you rapped this in the past 2-3 years you dodged a bullet, I would have to say.

Added a fresh BD small black nut to the cleaned up nut placement, and fresh 7mm webbing to link the new #10 BD nut under the roof, the micro nut, and the super old rusty Chouinard pin into one super stupid, but redundant and kind of safe, rap anchor for this perfect awesome pitch.

Comments: This climb is old school alpine 5.10. A classic Kor route, with decrepit old bolts and pins here and there.

Missing the 5.7 starting dihedral pitch made this climb a bit more interesting. We ended up left of the normal route all the way up to the base of the "death flake" pitch. The climbing mostly 5.8/5.9 or a bit harder. A fun chimney, some mild offwidthing, clean rock...so, no big deal if you miss the obvious corner start like the morons we are.

Comments: Where is "In search of Unicorns", the famous 11 on the Tail?

Ratings (difficulty and star) appear to be wrong for that one, if it's in the correct position.

Comments: Climbed both the corner (lead) and the thin crack on the face (TR). Both could be considered dicey for gear by modern standards. Both lines are super fun.
