Sill Class 4, North Couloir Rte
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
This is the short "class 4" SW of Apex peak, and across the catwalk. The tough part is no more than 25' high. I think you could cut sharp left, then traverse back right, avoiding this steep section entirely. The rock is good and there are good cracks, a few projections for your feet. There are typically lots of slings over that boulder; I dropped a handline from the sling, which no one needed on the ascent. 50' of 15mm webbing will do, plus you may want to have enough webbing to replace the sling. One fellow downclimbed with just a spot from below. Photo courtesy Phil H.
