Stoked to be back on Dinner Ledge after my first big wall. Only made it 2.5 pitches past this point on South Face Washington Column, incredible experience nonetheless.

Comments: For anyone doing research on this route in preparation for the lead: just go do it. It takes gear well, and both cruxes are protected. I took my first fall on gear on this route a few years back and is definitely worth your time if you like cracks. Do it.

Comments: I made a trip report for this route just before the flake let loose. Give 'er a read if y'all want to. Or don't. Either way, here it is:

Comments: I wish there were a way to describe how absolutely perfect this route is. But I can't. Just go try it yourself. Also- Don't TR it. That's just silly.

Also also- Trying to drop hexes in from the top seems just as silly as TRing. Cams work just fine.

Comments: Since the climbing on the route isn't worth being on there for hours, I would recommend pitching out pitch 1, then simul-climbing to the top after that. Doing it in this fashion allowed my friend and I to do this route in 2 hours on-sight.

Comments: I think I might have done this line today, believe that I was on North Country. We ended up trundling one of these death blocks, and I never saw any of these blocks with tat which Caughtinside describes. Crux came at a small roof, but again, I really have no idea what I climbed this afternoon.

Comments: There's nothing awkward about this "crux." Honestly, more heady climbing is encountered on the first pitch.

Comments: So Caughtinside describes a third pitch, which my partner and I found to be identical to our second pitch. This is one hell of an adventurous route, accompanied with huge loose blocks, obscure route beta, mossy cracks, lichen-covered smears, loose holds, stout mantels to incredibly bushy ledges, creative route-finding, and one hell of a long "third" pitch. Go try it if you're down for adventure. Stellar route. The only piece of advice that I will pitch forth is this: Don't try to do it in th... more >>

Comments: I believe that Spandex is mistaken with his post. There is nothing difficult on this route, don't bring a #4, there is no dihedral on the second pitch, and there is pretty much only one way to go if you stay on the proper route. Also a stellar free solo.

Comments: The "flaring" nature of this crack doesn't impede gear placement whatsoever. This crack eats gear. If you have trouble finding gear on this route, you've got issues. Great rests on solid hand jams and a solid rest after the first move allow you to place gear pretty much anywhere you like. Solid, amazing route!

Comments: No chips at the start! The first move is definitely there! Just jump for it, grab the crimp and HANG ON! After watching my buddy go for an RP yesterday (with no success, unfortunately), I was inspired to give it a shot. The bottom really isn't too bad, the first move, albeit hard, is only a few feet off the ground, once you find yourself on the huge gray thing, you'd really have to blow it to fall. Clip is easily within reach and a huge rest, which is grand because the climbing is quite sus... more >>
