5 out of 5 stars A much nicer route than it used to be! new

Finally got the red point on this one many years after blowing the last moves and taking a huge fall at the roof. Seemed pretty casual this time, comparatively:). A really nice route which starts and ends hard!

5 out of 5 stars Another Wildcat classic! new

Another chance to test your thin crack pain tolerance as well! Great locks for the most part with bomber gear throughout. Ends on a nice series of face holds with several bolts.

4 out of 5 stars Sustained technical climbing capped by a frustrating and thin finishing crux. new

This route is awesome up to about 10 feet below the chains. From there, it gets tricky, thin and greasy, just when you need it least.

5 out of 5 stars One of the best 11's in Washington!! new

A beautiful climb that should not be missed! Clean rock, great gear and awesome moves make this one of my favorite trad lines in Washington. The finishing moves are incredible and should certainly hold your attention

4 out of 5 stars Hard, but really great. new

Another longstanding project that I finally sent! This route has a devious and extremely pumpy series of moves through the 4th clip, followed by a nice rest. This is followed by another difficult section over a short bulge capped by another rest. Then, a final fierce sequence guards the chains which can be hard to clip if you're pumped. There are several bolts which need replacing on this route!!

4 out of 5 stars Tall man's finish!! new

Finally got the red point on this one after several tries. The left hand finish is fierce and has some really reachy clips!! Find and hit the hidden crimp or you will fly!!

4 out of 5 stars The "new" warm up. new

Now that the water's shut off, this route has cleaned up really nicely. I prefer it to Chicken Spread for warming up. I still can't make the stem start, but think the finish is around .11a?

4 out of 5 stars Another Dishman classic! new

This route packs a ton of value in only 80 feet! One of the harder .11a's out there. Welcome to Dishman!

5 out of 5 stars A real classic!!

Did this route with a party of three for my buddy Phil's birthday and we had a blast! The approach was hell, but well worth it for the views and amazing bivi spots. The approach was pretty sketchy compared to my usual crag destinations and I was glad to have an ice axe! The headwall crack and summit blocks are not to be missed!!

5 out of 5 stars Leavenworth's best trad line!!

Finally gave this route another go after a failed attempt many years ago. A classic route, but also a total burl fest! It took our party of three 4.5 hours to complete the last two pitches! The pressure chamber pitch kicked all of our butts and it seemed like at least .11c to me. A wonderful thrashing!!
