5 out of 5 stars Ring

I really enjoyed this route. It goes by quickly and the problems are tricky enough to make you think for a second.

5 out of 5 stars Classic

Great experience. Lots of snow in the approach gully. Love the chimney in the second pitch. Unroped at the top of the third and scrambled to the summit. 5.7 bouldering problem doesn't feel exposed at all.

4 out of 5 stars Good intro to Washington Pass climbing

Fun climb with plenty of pro and quick rappels back to base. a little chausy near the base but that is the case most often.

5 out of 5 stars Fun climb with long approach

Wish the climb had a few more pitches. Fun boulder move at the 5.7 crux near the summit.
