Susan on Northern Lite


Maybe the best 5.7 in the Gorge. Unlike another contender, High Seas on Warm Up, this pitch is not polished.


The leftmost route on Banana Belt, left of a nasty chimney.


9 bolts

Fun route with good ledges for rests for the beginner leader. Route was originally done on all gear and has since then been bolted. Follow the crack system or use the featured face. Fun & sunny. 9 bolts to Mussy Hook anchors.

Nice one. Neat moves on both sides of an arete.
