The climbs were developed by Vince and Rick Labelle and Kevin Hammond.
Nine routes lie on the wall directly below the no parking sign on Cliff Drive, west of the Edwidge Woldson Park sign. (Named after climbing pioneer- I hear ol' Edwidge pulled wicked hard)! There is another rock directly to the North a few paces. On the backside are 3 more kid-friendly bolted slabs in the 5.6-5.7 range. Another half-dozen routes are scattered to the West on the same line of crages as the main wall. They are a mix of bolted routes and TR anchors.
From downtown take Stevens St. South. As you drive up the hill stay to your right, toward Bernard St. After the road splits, you'll go under a bridge, which is Cliff Dr. (your objective). Take the next right on Sumner St., drive 1 block then another right on Stevens St. Drive 1 block, turn left on Cliff Dr. and park at the Pioneer Park pullout. Walk west for about 350 ft. to the no parking sign. You are now directly above the crag, look for an obvious steep path in a cleft between the rocks. Turn to your right. You're at the main wall.

If you you need a quick workout and don't want to pay for the gym, try this.Some sidepulls will lead you to the crux left hand crimp above the second bolt. I think the bums may have stolen the clipping jug at the third bolt. It gets easier as you hit the blocky bucket at the fourth bolt. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WA
