[TR] Snake River - More FAs 1/19/2007

Recommended Posts

Trip: Snake River - More FAs

 

Date: 1/19/2007

 

Trip Report:

Knowing that all this stuff was going to fall down, pup_on_the_mountain, Sam, and I climbed all of the remaining "safe" new routes along the Snake today. Temperatures were mild (upper 30's or so) and the ice was rapidly delaminating. Many of the free hangers fell down while we were there! Don't go rushing out to climb these since they'll all be gone in a day or so anyways.

 

We haven't named them yet, but here are the photos:

 

A route in "The Auditorium" WI3/3+R, 40'

another new route (WI2+R/X, 30'), with Higher Learning in the background. The only pro on this was a knifeblade at 2/3 height. I climbed to the top and then downclimbed back to the pin. :noway:

Finally, one more (WI3R, 40'):

Gear Notes:

Stubbies, screamers, and knifeblades

 

Approach Notes:

MP 19 on Wawawai River Road, between Wawawai and Lewiston.

More nice stuff ripe for the picking.

 

I'm wondering how many gullies and coulee's get ice where there's no road or easy access out there in the desert. Maybe Scurlock could do a few reconaissance flights :tup: :tup:

more pr0n for ya. we climbed the lefthand line today (see first photo above), the two lines in the center are unclimbed (and poorly bonded!). let's hope the obvious hanging pencil forms sometime!

5.5 to 6 hours.....I drove it in summer to Tri Cities then north and cut over to Colfax, WA and down. If you go through Lewiston and back down the Snake on the other side it actually takes longer....There are 1st ascent possibilities closer to PDX than the Palouse :grin:
