Description 

The middle part of the East Face (from the large corner with the curved top at the north to the beginning of the erosion gully at the south - basically the wide area with the 2 dozen pine trees below).

Although making up the largest mass of the South Canyon there are only two newly established (modern with fixed anchors) routes here so far. There are some great looking potential face climbs in this area, awaiting discovery… There are also some obvious vertical crack lines in this section which may have been climbed in the past, but there is no publicly shared beta about them. Proceed at your own risk…

Getting There 

Approach as for the rest of the South Canyon - a 25 to 30 minute hike to the base from the parking area.

Swiftly 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c  Washington : Okanogan : ... : The Mid West - South End
SWIFTLY 5.9- **** 200’ F (21b)Climb the middle of the large grey face left of the main arcing corner system at the far north end of the Mid West South End. Sustained moderate climbing leads to a high strenuous mantle move and then the exciting and airy finish. It's possible to rap the route with a single 60m rope, but double 60m is better. Can be done in one long pitch with a 60m rope and longer draws, or as two pitches (with a semi-hanging belay in the middle); P1 - 5.8 *** 100'...[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
