For a route "topo" see the photo posted to the main Outlook-Area page.
Topo may not follow exact route.

[via Woodman's comments]
P1. Climb past flakes and small corners and overlaps most any way up to the anchor. The crux move is climbing a short white slab past a bolt. Dirty in spots. 5.6 160'
P2. Better climbing leads past more small features up to a break in some small overlaps, then past a block, and back to the tree island. 5.5 160'

The name is a play on the name of the mountain the Outlook is located on the side of Mt. Success.


Climber's right of the cliff. From the tree island at the top, do a rappel down to a 2 bolt anchor, then rappel further down to just left of the bottom by a small pine tree. The route follows the line of the rappels.


A standard rack up to 3" will work.

I haven't done this one, but it looks a bit like the other routes in that some nice climbing starts about 100-125 ft down the cliff, and the bottom 100 ft is pretty dirty.
