Hmmm. I always thought Breakfast of Champions was that thirty-foot slightly overhanging 5.10 handcrack at the top of Roger's Corner. Is that crack part of a longer route that involves 5.13 climbing? Or are you just referring to the fact that Index 5.10 is the equivalent of 5.13 anywhere else?

You probably could make BOC 5.13 if you approached it via "virgin in on the ridiculous" or a free version of "snow white".

Here are a few more shots of Rattletale -- which is a fine climb. There was another climb just to its left that was growing over, so we re-cleaned it and it turned out to be stellar as well. We later learned it is called Avenging the Goddess Kring.

This is the view off p2 of Rattletale seen from the approach.

Pitch three

This is the start of Avenging the Goddess Kring. The photo is by someone who goes by Alpinfox on cascadeclimbers.com (I think Mister E knows him). I lifted the photo from Cascade climbers and will delete it if alpinfox objects. But it's a good shot of a fine climb.

I've never climbed at that area of Index Ghost. Looks like stellar splitters, and now I have to wait till Spring, bummer.
Here's first pitch flake of Dana's Arch. Bolted sport climb now and goes free at 11b, but also a great pitch to practice skyhooking move after move with no penalty.

My brother in law put up Little Phoenix-5.13 something. I know it's a shorter sport route but what's it like?

I've done short Iron Horse on TR and am hoping to lead it next time I'm out there on one of these dry cool high friction days instead of stuck working.


Who can name this upper wall (modern) classic?

You guys are making me hate the work hell I've been stuck in. Once I get some more free time I am sure it will rain for 90 days straight.

Just thought I'd add a quick update of the LTW situation. Yesterday the Director of Wa State Parks drove to Index from Olympia to discuss not only the status of the LTW but of the entire area. It seems everyone values the area but there is a still a lot of work to be done.


Here's a pic Bringmedeath took of the Golden Arch route. Only a body length section just before the belay hasn't been freed on this pitch:

I am pretty sure this corner has never had a second ascent:

Nothing to do with 5.13 but here is a route right at the boundary of the self-quarrying of the Lower Wall in the 80s. Rock dust in the crack prompted Max to turn over the lead because of risk to his contacts.
