  • Description 

    Good route. Mostly face climbing with good pro. Can experiment with jams near the top. Crux seems to be the very last move to the huge ledge. Compared with the other ratings of routes in the area, this 5.7 seems pretty easy.


    Route is on the far left of the Main Face. It's the second route from the left.


    Great gear of all kinds. Small at the beginning, bigger (to 2") near the top. Bolt anchors for top-roping or descent. Can also walk off.

    I very much enjoyed this route. Direct, straight up start through the thin section is the crux, IMO. Good gear throughout, fun climbing. It's just too short!

    Look for the fixed gear down low. This route sits at the far left side of the wall with an easier route to either side, and two sets of bolt anchors (one with rap rings) up top. It is near a trail that leads to the top of the main wall. Easy by Tieton standards, but would still be a 5.8 anywhere else.

    Relative to the rest of the crag this is stupid easy for the grade. That said, it's fun and easy to protect. Stay in the crack low for maximum fun. And no, this wouldn't be 5.8 anywhere else. This would be 5.6 or less most places and would be if it was consistent with the other climbs in the area.
