Stems and Seeds little brother. Not quite as classic as S&S, but every bit as fun. Scramble up to a belay from an upper pedastal at the base of the stem box. A tricky start will get you going and good rests will keep you going. You can get gear in both cracks but better to pick one and go with it (left).Near the top, most people choose to exit on the right hand crack though you can continue straight up, either way watch for loose rock...Belay from the top with 2+ inch cams. Rap from chains above...[more] Browse More Classics in WA
