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...A bolt anchor exists at the top....[more] Browse More Classics in WA

only 2 routes out of order:
Corner pockets is a little confusing, it is the next crack right of Split Beaver. Between the 2 routes Justified Ancients is bolts up a pillar for 1 pitch then continues on a column that is right of Corner Pockets for it's 2nd pitch and a variation continues past that 2nd pitch anchor to the top ( Acapulco Gold, 5.11b)
Catnip is left of Sinsemilla.
