Description

Climb 5.8 in a corner up to a two-bolt anchor, then continue up moderate terrain with some moves past a roof at ~5.10d or so to a ledge where the route cuts right and through the crux roof. Clip a long draw on the bolt below the roof and set off on the adventure.

Watch out for a hollow-sounding block that you end up hugging with both hands. Good holds bring you to the next bolt, but things get quite a bit more difficult for the next two clips. Sloping holds below the roof get you to some critical, tough-to-find crimpers just above the roof.

If you can make it to a good jug at the next clip, you just need to keep it together on the final headwall with small edges to the chains. Great route.

Location

Far right end of The Cave, right of the pictograph

Protection

12 bolts, including clipping an anchor part of the way up

I found the crux of this route to be not typical for the area or for Washington. It took me a minute to figure out. Fantastic, creative moves in an exposed and airy position. Go do it. Apr 12, 2017
