Comments: Death block alert. Finger crack variation finish. Avoid this pitch or, at the least, avoid putting any gear into this certain-to-fly, microwave, detached thing. The block is clearly shown (with gear) in one of the photos.

Comments: This photo nicely illustrates the 2nd, and most unavoidable, detached death block on the climb. The block feature with the gear nestled in it is a terrible accident waiting to happen.

Avoid this variation of the finish to South Face. Go left, and belay under the "offwidth" on the SW corner and climb that.

Comments: From my understanding of this area's orogeny, most of the rock on Washington is quartzite or schist, not granite. Anyways, it's frictiony and has that nice alpine feel. The descent of the Huntington Ravine trail can be accomplished onsight with some seriously exposed 3rd classing and would be a terrible option if moist. But, it was dry the day that we did it, and is doable if you have energy left from the climb. Again: The Huntington Ravine trail is a... more >>

Comments: This is a difficult and slippery climb. Make sure you get warmed up and have a good belay. The second Vee has a nasty surprise. Surely a deserving of the "Cathedral +" rating along with all the others at this old-school cliff.

Comments: The downclimb: if you end up belaying while standing on choss, you don't do the 2nd pitch for whatever reason, and perhaps the wall is festooned with many parties including a party on the OTH bolts, then there is a terrible choss traverse and downclimb waiting for you.

The terrible part is more about knocking rocks off than it is technical difficulty, but the technical downclimb moves are very exposed, and the poor trees are all dead. Please be careful of others down below, ... more >>

Comments: I went this way, left of the easier and standard path, first and got decent gear (above the climber, at the same level as the upper shadow corner) but then was looking at an insecure 10-ish face-mantel move with gear below my toes and death if that gear blew...so I downclimbed and went the standard way.

Don't go right of the upper corner unless you climb 11, like gear puzzles, and have a good partner.
