Very's listed as a project in the book and sports a 20 foot run out from the last bolt to the anchors, possibly still needs a bolt? The run out is easy climbing compared to the lower section, with huge holds and fun moves...The cruxes are hard, tenuous, sustained, and come one after another till the last bolt. This is quite simply the best sport route in Washington.....I hope your bag of tricks runs deep!


This is the route on the far right side of the wall. It has fixed draws on it and is about 25-30 meters in length. It has lockers at the top to lower off.


One quick draws at the first bolt, fixed the rest of the way.

As of 6-8-08 2 bolts have been add to the top and there is a hanger missing lower before the climbing gets "easier"

As of August '08, all bolts have hangers. There are a few fixed draws, but you mostly need to hang your own.
