Description 

Risky Pass is a 110 foot, second pitch, sustained 5.10 with breath-taking position and still evolving rock quality. When accessed via Orion (5.10a), and finished off with Skydive (5.10c), it's a spectacular three pitch bolted route.

It's named after the questionable play call that cost the Seahawks the Superbowl in 2015, and was originally ascended as a second pitch to Hawks Nest, a route named in honor of the Seahawks' winning Superbowl effort in 2014.

Location 

Risky Pass is located on the same feature as Sky Ridge, but on the East (main area) facing aspect. It can be accessed any of three ways: via Asterisk Pass and the first pitch of Sky Ridge , as a second pitch to Hawks Nest (better), or as a second pitch/extension to Orion (best!). When linked in a single pitch with Orion, it's a 190 ft, sustained 5.10 with 20 bolts.

Protection 

11 bolts to chain anchors on a comfortable ledge. Belay at the top. Descent: two rappels down the East face with a single 60 meter rope.
