North America, United States, Washington, Cascade Mountains, Climbs in Snow Creek Area, 1982

Climbs in Snow Creek Area, 1982. Jim Yoder did several new routes in the Leavenworth area. Perhaps the most notable was Hyperspace on Snow Creek Wall. It is a sustained free climb with four of the eight pitches being 5.10. The crux is a 5.10d slot. Also in early September 1982 Doug Klewin and the late David Stutzman made the first ascent of Bong Buttress, a prominent rock tower between Snow Creek and Rat Creek on the north edge of the Enchantment Lakes plateau.
