The route is above the climbers heads at the bottom of the photo. starting with a v3 boulder problem and up to a burly mantle. Super fun.

Sharmalito's Ladder 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  WA : Northeast Corner & Spokane : ... : Pack Rat Cave
Starts off with a nice boulder problem right off the ground. Followed by an awkward mantle. Then choose between an uncomfortable no hands mantle or a big move up high left. One more big move gets you up to the juggy finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

My girlfriend and I just recently moved to Northport, Washington. We have been setting up new routes on the property that we live on and also enjoying the great routes at China Bend. If anyone would be interested in climbing or collaborating, I would love to get in touch.

Climb up to 5.13 but love climbing any grade.

Cheers,
Blake Rockhill
