Description 

Mostly sandstone boulders, with some small cliffs. One (bolted?) roof crack on Fragrance lake, but no other obvious development. Some of the better boulders cleaned , with more potential for development.

Getting There 

From Chuckanut Drive, turn onto Hiline Rd which turns into Cleator Road. Drive the road, past the hairpin turn until you get to an obvious pull out (decommissioned road) on the right. Park here. If you get to the upper Fragrance lake trailhead (next to a gate that is usually open), you have gone too far. There is a trail which heads uphill, and then along a ridge, which eventually brings you to Fragrance Lake. Boulders are down the east side of the ridge (towards Cleator Rd.) about 15 minutes up the trail and continue all the way to Fragrance Lake.

Climbing Season

For the Bellingham Area area.
