Description

Another excellent addition to the Illusion Wall (2010)featuring knob littered face climbing at a consistent grade. Great position with typical Illusion Wall views of Salish Peak, 3 Fingers, and surrounding Squire Creek Valley. Like most of the Illusion Wall routes, the top two pitches are more of a means to get to the top and are not as high quality as the middle pitches.

Location

Start as for Excalibur but continue along the ledge leftward about 50ft to another two bolt anchor. Identify the route with a short brushy corner and face to a ledge with a large Juniper bush and a two bolt anchor. The first two pitches can be linked. From here its easy to stay on route following mostly bolt protected face but utilizing a gear placement here and there. Run outs are minimal compared with most Darrington climbs but one should expect 15 ft. bolt spacings at times so it probably wouldn't be considered sport climbing. For more approach info check out cascadeclimbers.com and Search The Page or Excalibur.

Protection

Small rack to 1", 15 quickdraws
bolted anchors
double 60m ropes to rappel down the route or down Excalibur
