1st pitch looking up. The 2nd pitch is obvious as the chains can be seen from the 1st anchor. 3rd pitch is up right, then back left to the flake and up the crack on the left.

Comments: Agree with Micah's directions and David's rating. Did this route today after three months off of climbing. 5.10b.

Comments: The Wiggle Room is just left of Usual Suspects. It is not at the far left as stated here. The crack at the far left is Ninjinski and is 5.10-.

Very fun climb but bring small nuts to protect the top. You won't find cam placements for about 20 feet.

Super fun climb; climbs different than most routes at Trout. Not just stemming or straight in jamming.

Comments: You can easily burn 5 0.75 on this with many smaller pieces. Careful placement will take 1-2 BD 1's. For full value stay straight until the big easy traverse directly to the anchors for Rodeo. Moving right to Rodeo down low isn't necessary (nor correct).

Comments: Fun route with good gear and fun moves. Not the typical Leavenworth climb. Probably on the easy side of 5.9 as there are some large holds to pull on, but harder than several 5.8's in the canyon.

Comments: Maybe this route is entirely height dependent (I am 5'4"), but it seemed on par with squiggles at Trout Creek in terms of difficulty. I think the only reason this is 10a is that the crack is very short. However, it is also very thin.

I feel this is a sandbagged route due to the short, hard section. The majority of the route is 5.7, but the crack is 10b/c. It is WAY harder than cocaine crack on Icicle Buttress (10a) or Hello Kitty (10-) on middle eight mile buttress.


Location: WA : Central Region : Banks Lake / Northrup Canyo... : Orange Wall : Heart of Stone (5.10a)
By: littleman When: May 14, 2014

Comments: We approached via barker ORV park. Stay left at the Y and drive around. The drive isn't too bad as long as you have decent ground clearance. The hike around the north end is moderate and about 40 minutes.

After climbing Heart of Stone, we hiked over to the top of Post Modern wall planning to rap into those routes (5.9 60 foot hand crack) but none of the anchors (3) were complete. All were missing one or both hangars. Since it was late (4:30) we decided best not to rap off into the unknown... more >>

The Northern End

There is a route missing. Between Talkin' It Clean and Desperado is Old Dirty Bastard 5.10+ (stiff for the grade). Moderate hand crack pinches down to fingers before all but disappearing. Stemming and pinching aretes gets you to the top on thin gear.

The Northern End

Routes are out of order. The wiggle room is left of Usual Suspects.

The route to the left of Where's Noah Vibbert is Ninjinski (5.10-)
