West Face 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b A0  Washington : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : The Flagpole
The West Face route is a fun bolt ladder after a wandry but easy approach pitch of approximately 5.7 climbing. The bolts on the ladder are old and somewhat dodgy looking. I used tie offs through some of the hangars as they were unable to accommodate regular biners. Although these days of very low profile biners that may not be an issue anymore. The top anchor is nice and new and very reliable. The exposure on this route is memorable....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
