Rock Climbing Photo: near the anchor

George and Martha 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Washington : Vantage (Frenchman Coulee) : ... : King Pins
This route is in the central/left part of the Stems and Seeds area. It is the 2nd crack to the right of the fairly obvious Seven Virgins and a Mule (5.7) chimney. An excellent handcrack with some faceholds that provide very nice stances for placing pro. It gets a little wide at the very top. This is the route to climb if you want to toprope Red M&Ms....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington

This area is called "King Pins" in most guide books.

only 2 routes out of order:

Corner pockets is a little confusing, it is the next crack right of Split Beaver. Between the 2 routes Justified Ancients is bolts up a pillar for 1 pitch then continues on a column that is right of Corner Pockets for it's 2nd pitch and a variation continues past that 2nd pitch anchor to the top ( Acapulco Gold, 5.11b)

Catnip is left of Sinsemilla.
