Snow Creek Wall - Orbit

5.8+, 7 pitches

Considered PG13, has some runout. Steph has done it 4 times, and even on her 4th time, she says “never seems as trivial as its grade”. Resources / Credit Mountain Project Steph Getting there 2:10 hour drive from home 2:00 hour hike? 2.5 miles, 2,200 ft gain, Mountain Project says +/- 1.5 hours 8:00…

Box Ridge

Not sure what this is, but it looks like it could have routes on it Might be called “Lobox Mountain” and “Mossy Slab” Lobox TR: Lobox has 10-25 ft of class 4

Burgundy Spire - North Face

No Sweat - No Sweat Arete

5.7, 4 pitches Quick summary of what you’re getting into… Ticks, lots and lots of ticks during tick season (even on Aug 5th we found 3 on us). Location on MP is wrong, I’ve submitted a correction and also posted GPX approach/descent trails) Not the best approach (1-1.5 hrs), steep dirt scree slopes for the second half…

Dome Peak - Gran Torino

5.9, 13 pitches

See Cascades Rock book by Blake Herrington. I think the other route on this peak is actually easier since it has fewer tough pitches.

Dome Peak - Indian Summer

5.10-, 7 pitches

See Cascades Rock book by Blake Herrington Sources Approach Brutal approach… from the west, it’s ~10 miles, 7,800 ft gain, the same approach as to Spire Point, which is the Ptarmigan Traverse trail, which is where we were bit by wasps at least 3 separate times on the bushwacky trail. So probably 2 days…

Little Big Chief Mountain - Falcon Route

5.9, 9 pitches

In the middle of nowhere! Apparently Middle Fork had a landslide on Dec 31, 2019, and is still probably closed because of that. Mid-summer is earliest estimated reopoening. Big thanks to Little Big Chief Mountain, Falcon Route. Jeff Hansell and I made this new route (IV 5.9) on September 10,2001. Little Big…

The Tooth - The Tooth Fairy

5.9+, 7 pitches

Such a good route! Well bolted, accurate grade, fun climbing, good route! It’s basically like Flyboys but only 7 pitches. And it’s only a 2 hr approach. Only 3 rappels (and a little scrambling) to get down the standard tooth route too! Big thanks to Gear 13 draws, 60m rope. Or if linking, 15…

Mythic Peak - Green Creek Arete

5.6, 6 pitches

New log bridge: Mostly easy scrambling up an arete. Excellent description here. Like many routes in the Sisters the climbing was much easier than it looked. We scrambled up delightful 3rd and 4th class rock before slipping into rock shoes for a clean exposed slab on the crest of the arete. The horizontal section…
