Northern Passage Upper starts from the left side of the terrace. It was unearthed 2 weeks earlier than Lower and climbed while it was still damp and muddy in approach shoes. 1 bolt was installed for the FA, later removed when Jim Opdycke returned and spent another full weekend cleaning the route off and he shockingly discovered 2 small perfect placements for nuts which had been earlier hidden deep under the mud. There is a perfect short 5-6" crack at top which can be either climbed or avoided by heading left to the large fir tree and up the short face above to top out. A 3/4" cam will work for protection near the top for either variation (unless you just like carrying large gear) and as with all regular climbs, bring a few long over the shoulder length slings to keep the line of pro straight. It is recommended that folks always stay clipped in as there is a real possibility of this entire dirt ledge sliding off. Disregard this note if you do not see any dirt on the ledge up here.


small pieces to 1" (6" optional)
You can get 5 pieces of pro in for an anchor if you look hard enough, small to medium wired stoppers and small/med cams or hexes.
