Awesome stemming route especially if you have long legs. The book claims anyone over 6' can drop a letter grade, make what you want of that. placing gear on the left seemed best to me. Hard part is seeing what you place. Eventually move left to a bolted anchor or top out. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

That approach gully is a 5.7 down climb with scree on every foothold. I wouldn't even try to bring kids or dogs this way and go around to the left the long way. I'm thinking about putting steel rungs in the descent gully for an easier approach.
