Description

Very sustained...it'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!

Location

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.

Protection

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

You'll need four quickdraws for this route - two at the bottom and two at the top. The rest are fixed. Amazing line. Jun 12, 2016

As of August '08, all bolts have hangers. There are a few fixed draws, but you mostly need to hang your own. Aug 23, 2008
