North America, United States, Washington, Cascade Mountains, Blueberry Hill, Darrington Area

Blueberry Hill, Darrington Area. Chris Greyell and I made a new route on this face in June. We started well to the left of the Sumner- Gerhardt route in a large central depression. The first pitch follows a low-angle slab to where the wall steepens. The next four pitches consist of mixed free and aid climbing. Here the angle lessens and the climbing follows an easier straight line to the summit. The route contains two blank sections, each of about 20 feet, on the second and fifth pitches; we used bat hooks.
