The waterfall at the Fire Wall

Description 

A large, yet relatively undeveloped, massif of quality limestone. The crag is affected by diurnal winds and provides a secluded sport climbing destination. The established routes currently range from 5.10+ to 5.13a, while a single project has turned away all efforts to date.


Getting There 

From the Mazama General Store, head west on Lost River Road for 5ish miles until the road begins to get windy and 35mph signs are seen (past Goat Wall). There is a primitive campsite with a large pullout extending west, park here. The trail starts across the street and leads into the forest. The trail is fairly worn, ultimately navigating across and up a large gully of talus. Watch out for snakes in the warmer months. After about 30 minutes the trail will split. The wall straight up is the Fire Wall, while the trail to the left leads to the Rough Cut Wall.

Incredible, reddish limestone arete. A reachy, techy crux is committing for shorter climbers, hence the slash grade. A beautiful line sustained with thoughtful, cryptic movement. Also, just one of many excellent routes at this new crag....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
