West Ridge 4th 1 2 I 2 M 1b  Washington : Northwest Region : ... : North Twin
A long approach past Dailey Prairie to a ridge of solid sticky golden dunite. Once you've endured the slog, the route slowly turns from exposed hiking between stands of little fir trees into some sporting alpine scrambling. Options for 5th class abound. Easy route finding (just follow the ridge crest) with beautiful views and solid grippy rock! Lots of unnecessary handjams and fingerlocks can be had.Excellent write-up on Summit Post....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
