Ripper 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  WA : Southwest Cascades : ... : (8) Old School Wall
This finger crack follows a dihedral up to the crux bulge and then opens up to chains on your right side. Can be continued directly up the "Piton Variation" (10ish) to the Orion ledge, though this addition is slightly spooky. You can also step right and walk up the final blocks of Little Dipper to the same anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
