Michael and I made the drive over to the dry side Saturday for a little crack climbing at The Bend along the Tieton river. The day started cool and windy, but cleared up to sunny and perfect after lunch. We started off with Ed's Jam and climbed a number of other routes off Ed's Jam ledge including Peace, Love, and Rope, MX, Seizure, and top roped the offwidth to the left of MX. Seizure has a cool roof which one pulls over on handjambs. Gear note: Rapping off the MX anchors back to Ed's Jam ledge requires two ropes or a long single. I had a 65m which barely reached.
After lunch, I got my opportunity to pull through a roof on Salmon Song (after hanging from the rope to scope it out). Then Michael floated up Pure Joy. Hallowed Ground finished me off for the day and we packed out as the sun was setting over the ridge. Mexican in Yakima, and back in Seattle by 11.
