topo Sloan - NW Buttress??

Recommended Posts

In a thread last year Alex mentioned the Bunker-Preiss route on the NW Buttress of Sloan. Anyone have any info about this route?

I did that route a few summers ago. It's a good Cascadian blue-collar adventure kind of thing. Some choss and vertical bush climbing, and some good rock. We intentionally got a late start and bivied on a ledge somewhere in the middle just for fun. I think the crux went at about 5.10; I don't really remember, but I think my girlfriend led it and she's pretty resistant to french freeing.

No, I don't think she would mind. After I asked I noticed the first one has her name on it, answered my question. I think when in doubt best to give credit, but I have the sense she's all about getting information out there.
