Comments: The business starts off the deck. The Crux is the finish however when the crack runs out. Very fun movement and technical challenge. Good luck on-sighting this one.

Comments: The middle section requires a micro cam in the horizontal crack leading left from the flake corner, as the flake corner has no crack for gear at this point. This is the crux moving above that piece and a little run out, hence the PG-13. Move up the corner and then left over the bulge. The last placement is just behind the bulge and can't been seen from below. The route is committing and more strenuous than it looks.

Comments: The first pitch if off limits for access until further notice at the landowners request. You can still climb the upper buttress via access from the parking lot and the climbers trail. There are several excellent routes on the ledge just left of the 4th 10b pitch start for Orion. Makes it worth the hike up to climb these routes.

Comments: The top of the "razor thin" flake broke off leaving a more difficult move to the next bolt, which needs to be moved lower.

Comments: From the start move horizontally all the way to the Arete. Move up into a very fun layback crack section all the way home.


Location: WA : Northeast Corner & Spokane : Spokane Area : Tum Tum : Banana Split Dome : Banana Split (5.8)
By: Kevin Driscoll When: Jun 16, 2016

Comments: The first pitch has now been bolted for easier access to the main crack on pitch 2. New anchors have been installed on both pitch 1 & 2. Poison Ivy treated with roundup so hopefully will be eradicated. It's a classic fun trad line. Have an extra #3 or #4 for the lower section. Somewhat runout to the chains but just 5.5 slab there.

Comments: Very Fun, excellent variety for a short route. Sequencing the upper section was challenging and would be an impressive onsight, took me 5 attempts. One of the best routes at Tum Tum.

Comments: The sequence thru the drainage crack makes this a entertaining route

Comments: Many new routes have been added and the old ones upgraded and cleaned in 2015. Plenty of variety for all levels of climbing ability. Longest multi pitch sport routes in the area. Beautiful setting overlooking Long Lake and close to Spokane.

Comments: Be patient on the 2nd and 3rd bolts and you'll be rewarded. Excellent thin slab route.

Comments: This one will make you think with a variety of movement and holds. Don't warm up here as the crux is right off the deck. 10b


Location: WA : Northeast Corner & Spokane : Spokane Area : McLellan Rocks : White Wall : Tizzy (5.10a/b)
By: Kevin Driscoll When: Sep 2, 2012

Comments: I found the route to be reasonably clean at this point. Plenty of solid holds for hands and feet and pumpy due to the moderate overhang. Jam the off-width crack left as one option for the finish.

Comments: Good crack system to place gear on a moderate climb. Bolts are there but not needed. Great setup to practice hanging belay from top.

Comments: Excellent moderate face climb for us more mature climbers. Good pro w/6 bolts. Anchor chains above the ledge are shared with Quick and Witty.

Comments: It's a blank slate above the 3rd bolt. However, not vertical so with patience can be done.
Route is just left of Mid Life Crisis.
