Comments: I thought I would add this comment after hearing a couple stories from people climbing this route (they did the right hand variation because they thought it was easier and got spooked/and or fell). I've done both variations:

The "Left hand variation" protects the best, and is a fun layback ending in a 1- bolt traverse back to the right.

The "right hand variation" uses small pro (brass offset), maybe pg13 and graded maybe 5.9 and a little dirty, could use a bolt, maybe.

I like the left var... more >>

Comments: If you go to the summit (8 pitches), hike west and downish in a corkscrew around path of least resistance to find a single bolt rap to the standard rap line. No need for a #5 and 1 #4 is good enough. Classic alpine adventure.

Comments: All 5 pitches are good fun and nice rock. I liked rapping US with double ropes. One single 60m from top of pitch 5 to ledge and 2 x double raps down US. Fast and easy Imo.

Comments: Reminded me of Cali granite.

Easy to get to base through steepish well marked trail. Road in has been travelled via many different types of vehicles. Drive until it gets really rocky, park and look for trail marker. You'll know you are on the trail if you cross near a rope bridge (which we crossed for fun at end of day)

Once at base, traverse right for awhile and scramble up some rock steps

Comments: It's fun to climb old grey mare and traverse over into the 2nd pitch of canary and create a long mega face climbing pitch. Im going to bring a 70m next time and see if I can get to the top of castle in a pitch.

Comments: I love this route as a linked route (2 pitches linked as 1). Single rack is fine with a 60 meter, though it'll take 2 raps to get down. Goes at 5.9 if you climb both pitches

Comments: If you have a tagline, easy 2 double length raps to ground. We improved webbing on 2nd rap. I thought first pitch was honest 10d lead when compared to other 10ds.

Comments: Better route is to do the lower finger crack of this route, at the small roof traverse to dancing bear and finish up there. Then you get the best of both and avoid the not so great parts.

Comments: Awesome route, one of my favorite cracks in tieton. It's the type of climb I think about. . Wish I had two #4 camalots.

Comments: This route is fun alpine with some pretty great cracks and spectacular perspectives of dragontail, colchuck, stuart, Daniel, etc..

Route is mostly 5.9 to 5.10b (sustained) with about a 10 foot section of 10d about midway on P4 after exiting the 5.8 crack. Gear to 3 inch is fine. We brought a #4 and didn’t need it. Walk off is easy/nice, and rounds out the alpine adventure though would be more challenging with snow.

Safety notes: (1) There are a lot of loose rocks/blocks throughout ... more >>

Comments: This is a fun route, soft for the grade of 10d, maybe more like 10c overall. Chimney was the hardest pitch, takes some time to figure it out!

Combine the off fingers and 5.9 pitch for long pitch. Works well.

Single rack to 4, set of nuts, with double purple and green Camelot, double yellow aliens too.

Comments: Best done as one long pitch from ground, starting on RC, don't need a ton of gear. Doubles of mid size gear works aok. Extend slings on RC section to avoid drag. I used a 70 m rope with plenty to spare, my partner counted remaining rope and thinks was about 55m for the pitch.

Comments: While at the base and preparing to climb, an unexplained rock came sailing from above. Also noticed very recent rockfall at the base of morning star (to the left of this climb). Yesterday a friend told me he heard from a local that Orc tower above is deteriorating and may be coming down soon, have not verified, but seems reasonable since rockfall occurred recently when I was there and you can see evidence of very fresh rockfall near-by. Something to consider while in the area.

Comments: Lower 4 pitches...wear your helmet, especially if others are above. Lots of loose stuff. Not typical Squamish climbing.
