The Longest Sport Route

“Infinite Bliss” near Seattle has 23 pitches and is supposedly the longest sport climb in North America at 2600 feet. An older trip report here has directions to get there. From this recent report, I found this quote:

James and I went first. 600 feet of mega slab was taken down in a cool half hour. I’ve never climbed so fast in my life. It was a white blur of wind and water polished granite. When we finally stopped we had put down the first ten pitches in a matter of an hour and a half, and one of those pitches included a really cool 5.9 pitch that is no slouch.”
