Like many Spokane cracks, the start is lacking, but it gets better as you move into the meat of it. The initial moves into the crack are protected by one bolt. Good gear placements abound up another 10m from fingers to hands. Then step right, exiting the crack to move past 2 bolts to the anchors.

This is a great route for learning to jam, as face holds and great jams abound.

Mind pulling your rope as the rock has a lot of friction and the anchors are set far back, leading to lots of drag on the pull.


This route is on the middle triples north face and close to the chimney and the north triplets west face.


3 bolts, and a selection of cams 1-8 metolius will cover you.

Fun route! Single rack .5-3 will get you up. There's unfortunately only a few good jams in the lower section. Didn't really feel that hard, but still some quality climbing. Make sure you extend the anchor since it is set back so far. Oct 23, 2017
