Aid Climbing Practice Circuit
Kposaune posted a topic in Climber's BoardHello! I have been working on developing an aid practice circuit at Wayne’s World/Darkside at Exit 38 for those interested in working on bigwalling skills. I retrofitted three drytooling routes yesterday which we personally developed. The three routes go at C1 with a set of hooks. You could also get a little practice with cam hooks and thin cams in a few places but both of those are unnecessary. All three routes have clean falls and are slightly overhanging. I also added a bolt to the anchor 8 ft off the ground for sport route cleaning practice or bigwall anchor rope management practice/hauling setup/portaledge building (Swanson Pyramid of Greatness). Highstepping For Jesus-C1 bolts with hooks. Cam hooks and a couple thin cams optional. A long enough route and overhanging enough to practice jugging ropes and cleaning. Dingleberries of Eden-C1 mandatory hook move between bolt 4-5. Vader Built My Hotrod C1 hooks optional, couple pods accept cam hooks for practice. I am working on other routes with fixed gear/more interesting aid climbing, but you ought to be able to get up straightforward routes like Liberty Crack after some practice on these in an area with few visitors in the summer season.

dry tooling PNW Joins The 21st Century
Kposaune posted a topic in Climber's BoardHello! The season has come where the rock is wet, skis are worthless, and ice has yet to grow, if it ever does. Behold, the best collection of dry tooling in the Pacific Northwest! Mik Metzler leading Chewbaccerotica D7 Over the past 10 months we have trundled, scrubbed, and fully bolted 25 routes from D4-D8. We are also working on an advanced crag holding 8 or so routes from D8-D12. These routes are nothing like the slab, mud, and road cuts you have tried. Tom Beirne on a repeat ascent of Piña Coladas With Palpatine D7 This is the beginning of bringing the PNW into the future, and if you haven’t been here yet you are in for a treat. All routes are accessible to TR access with bolted stainless anchors with stainless wire gates. We expect that some may not be able to complete routes, so you can TR through these wire gates. We want you to try anything without concern for having to leave your gear behind as popularity and skill for the sport grows. They are your anchors! All of the thousands of dollars of hardware was generously donated through hundreds of donations from the community. When the anchor biners need replacing, we will all be overjoyed to replace them. Jen climbing during the second Ladypolooza women’s event Currently as the season is picking up, there are about 2-3 groups out at Wayne’s World/Darkside every weekend, and a few groups during the week and development continues. We monitor and fix issues usually in a few days. 7 routes on the main wall have had new dry-static ropes installed (generously donated!) for fast access to route anchors. Joanne enjoys the new extension of Party Time! Excellent! D6 If you have questions or concerns, or looking for a partner you may contact me directly. We also have a community FB page SeattleMixed Climbing to see FA’s, condition reports, and developing updates and new routes are available.

Dry Tooling At Rocky Butte
OldClimber1 posted a topic in Access IssuesRegarding dry tooling at Rocky Butte. I've noticed more and more climbs are being damaged including my favorites vertical therapy, jack of hearts, stain glass and several others. Have we decided that it's OK to destroy all the routes at Rocky Butte. That would be a sad thing. I ran into to a dry tooler yesterday and he seems to think all climbs are available.
