Featured Route For The Sanctuary

Cosmic Trigger 5.13+ 8b 30 X- E7 7a  WA : Vantage (Frenchman Coulee) : The Sanctuary
Short and powerful sport climb with fun steep climbing, nearly horizontal to 45 degrees.Solid rock throughout. Pretty short with less than 20 moves; could call it V9 boulder.Chains should probably be moved higher, since the last move takes you to a finger bucket slightly above anchors (don't grab chains to clip; last move is definitely cruxy!)....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

4-10-14: I walked up to the sanctuary cave and witnessed a Peregrine Falcon returning to her nesting site (heard little ones too), which is located on top of the cave, far right. It is extremely close to the routes on the far right, so I am SUGGESTING A VOLUNTARY CLOSURE. Let's help to make sure these wonderful creatures survive their infancy and give'em their space :)
