Description

Revolver is another worthwhile multi-pitch route on the northern slab of 3 O'Clock Rock. Although overshadowed by it's neighbors, it has quality slab climbing and would be popular at most other crags. Its five independent pitches are accessed by traversing leftward from Silent Running, making a 6 pitch outing.

Revolver does have two minor issues: It is the last climb on the face to dry out and is prone to hardware damage from rockfall (see comments for updates). Thankfully rockfall has happened when no climbers or hikers were present, but obviously a helmet is never a bad idea.

There is an excellent topo in Weekend Rock - Washington by David Whitelaw. 

Location

The route is located left of Silent Running, as shown in the topo. Looking straight up from the base of Silent Running, note a distinctive carrot-shaped pillar about 500' up where the wall steepens. Silent Running veers right of this feature, while Revolver crosses the shallow drainage and finishes to the left of the carrot.

Protection

Draws (8-10) plus a small rack of cams, tiny to 2". All belays and rappels are bolted for double rope rappels (60 m minimum). Most but not all old bolts were replaced.
