Comments: Thanks Derek.

How hard are P4 (traverse) and P5?

Also, about the pro, roughly, what is the max size in inches of the 3 and 4 BD, and the min size of the 0.75?

Comments: This must be the pitch after the long corner, the one that traverses over to the dike?

Comments: Nice Derek, thanks.

I wonder if anyone has repeated HITAGA? Great pitch. I suppose it needs an easier access pitch though, as TIINLA and Bobcat Cringe are a bit tough.

Comments: Is there a plan to have an access pitch from the bottom?

Also, is the first pitch of HB for Glory completely free? (i.e., up to the amazing, long crack pitch.)

Comments: Looks great, Derek.

About the # of bolts, the edited Clint topo that you posted here says "14? bolts".

How close is this route's anchor to the Hell Bent anchor?

Comments: Do you mean "bulge"?

Although 'getting through the budge' sounds like it could be a new phrase. I am just totally out of it...

Comments: Well, even 100-200 is plenty.

Are there more boulders like "The Pebble' in the vicinity?

That boulder looks really fun. You've shown some other areas with great-looking boulders, but I quickly forget where they are. Perhaps it would be nice to have an "Area" listing for just the boulders of the Okanogan.

Comments: So, Derek, that would be early spring 2017 (or winter 2016-2017)?

I'm keen on it. Hopefully, my knee will be up for the moves.

Still awaits a lead.

Comments: TIINLA: Oh man, I thought 11b, and Derek is saying 12b/c. The move up high that is hard might not require a long reach, just flexible hips -- I recall throwing my foot way left.

Derek, you cleaned "Jack R", so you get to name it. The cleaners name things at Index, don't they?

I recall TRing it with you and Jonathan, taking many falls on a really hot day, but getting all the moves. Seemed much harder than the Cringe.

Comments: If I remember right, you use the cams on the 4th pitch. And there might have been a placement on the 1st.

Comments: JCM -

That crack is 'You can cool Jack Robinson'. It hasn't been led, just TRed. Derek posted some pics on the main Lookout Point page.

There is another route that merges with it in which you go up either Purple Kool Aid or Peanuts, then do a 5.10 face move over to Jack R- (at the bolt), and continue up. At least with the direct start into Kool Aid, it is called 'This is Index, Not LA', and is ... more >>

Comments: Update:
There are two right-facing crack-shallow corners, somewhat right-trending on the left half of the crag. The left one is "The mystical garden of free-wheeling animals" 11b, and the right one is "Flight to Mars" 11b.

About midway up 'Mystical', the route veers a little left, while the crack system goes right. Maybe this is what Pawel was asking about.


It has been about 35 years since I ... more >>

Comments: Looks great. Two questions:

Is it "fairies"?

Does the boulder problem have a different grade?

Comments: Looks wild, and maybe having a possible kneebar move or two?

Also looks hard for a 10+, even by Index standards.

Comments: On the Wu Wei Wall, all routes must start at the top. One then 'flows downward' in harmony with the pull of the ground.

I can only hope. Anyway, looks like a nice rock face.
