yes some good routes but who wants to hike all their sh#t up there in the rain to climb on moss with loose hanging blocks above your head in the freezing cold.

Don't let this place get turned into a quarry. Please contribute to the cause at http://www.washingtonclimbers.org/IndexFund/

Hey Reily,

Is that actually at index? I know there are some rarely in ice routes on the upper wall...

I am sure the good times continue, but perhaps we were more spiritual BITD.




Not so spiritual that we didn't need to dodge raindrops, though.

Ryan,
It was actually a waterfall near Mt Index.
I remember that smear forming once or twice up to the right of the
Diamond was it?

I think one of those gullies near the diamond has frozen

The main water fall on the upper wall reportedly froze briefly (and thinly) this last year but I don't think anyone got at it.

MH2, cool "spiritual" picture of iron horse. I can't tell but it kind of looks like there aren't any fixed pins at that point? There are two right at the crux there these days (and remnants of some old broken ones). Most people these days seem to make a delicate high step up and left at that point.

Yes, it is the third pitch of Town Crier and it looks like you are leading it Doc! You fired it off in short order. :)
