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
