Diamond in the Rough

5.11-, Trad, Alpine, 1100 ft (333 m), 8 pitches, Grade III,  Avg: 2 from 1 vote
FA: Rad Roberts & Brandon Workman (2011)
Washington > Northwest Region > Darrington & Mt… > Glacier Peak Wi… > Sloan Peak

Description

Not sure if anyone has but it might be worth a repeat???
The belay at the top of the crux (pitch 3?) is a bit sketchy. Might be nice to put a pin or bolt there to back up the block that we used. Otherwise it was a fun adventure climb with a fair amount of good rock and junk rock alike.
