Description

This can be climbed in any condition. Some ice makes the climbing easier, but the protection more difficult (unless there's a lot of ice). With less ice, the rock gear is excellent and the mixed climbing a bit harder. Either way, it's a super excellent mixed route.

Go up the corner and follow a crack system to a ledge at two-thirds height. There's an old piton here. Go up a left-facing corner a final steep ice section.

There's a fixed anchor on a tree. You can *just* lower with a 60m rope.

Location

Approach as for Sisters Left/Right, then walk down and left along the base of the cliff to the low point of the terrain. Continue uphill and left another 100' to a large, broken left-facing open book corner.

Protection

Screws and a full rock rack to 3".

I've always considered these to be the same line, but done in vastly different conditions. Feb 8, 2014

Great climb, can anyone tell me the distinction between this and Slutty Other I believe it is called in Blue Lines? Climbed this section of cliff last week but not really certain what exactly I was climbing. Just curious, either way it was all fun but afterwards reading the guide and viewing this page left me wondering. Feb 7, 2014
