Hey Jimbo,

If all other partners fail, I'm probably open for late next week. Sugarloaf would be a great day with a snowcap on Mt Wash. Drop me a line next week.

Quoting: "The green slab that leads up to a crack through a roof is Bullet?  the slab is 5.7/8 the sharp crack through the roof is 5.6."

Correct route name is Bullit after the 1970s car chase movie. On the FA of the first pitch (which BTW, had no bolts placed for pro, only one 1/4" bolt for a belay under the ceiling with the crack) we found a link of expended .223 rifle casings from a weapon like a SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon). That link and the movie gave the route it's name. The second pitch required at least two further attempts, cleaning the blueberry-filled crack through the ceiling on the lead. The route was finished in the rain, making for some exciting slab climbing near the top!
