DescriptionA decent moderate, Washboard is a nice introduction to Moore's Wall for the first-time visitor.
P1 -- Starting at the end of the approach trail, marked by a large dead tree, move up a big crack in a right-facing corner to a roof. Move right under the roof, then up and left of a small arete. Continue with nice face climbing to finish at a ledge with a small pine tree. 5.6, 100'
P2 -- Continue up on easy ground to the top of the cliff. 5.0, 100'
NOTE: The Selected Climbs guidebook lists Washboard as a one-pitch route, but safe descent options for doing only the first pitch listed above are limited, so topping out is the best alternative.
LocationStarts where the approach trail reaches the cliff.
Descent options include:
-- after topping out, walk around to climber's right to the Sentinel Buttress and use the rap station there.
-- after topping out, walk around to climber's left and find a descent gulley between the main wall and the Amphitheatre.
-- from P1, use alleged 4th class descent as described in the guidebook; roping up for this descent is highly recommended as fall consequences would be deadly.
