warmup boulder at the entrance to East Forest

No vehicle access, but open to foot traffic MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The boulders located below Zeek's Wall in the forest above the clear cut. The area can be divided into the West, Middle and East Forest. To access the west area turn left at the major fork and park in the west parking area. To access the East Forest turn right at the major fork and park in the east parking area. The boulders are generally smaller than those found in the clear cut. The boulders can get very mossy so bring some brushes. In the summer the mosquitoes can be vicious.

Getting There 

Take Hwy. 2 East to Gold Bar. After you pass Gold Bar take a left on Reiter Rd. Follow Reiter Rd. At the 2.1 mile mark take a left onto a large gravel rd. Follow this road under the powerlines to a sharp right turn and head up the ridge. Stay on this gravel road. It will pass an orange gate and continue up the mountain. The road will switch back several times until you end up in a clear-cut with many prominent, large white boulders. The boulders are spread out over this clearing and up into the forest below the cliff.

Kirby's last Days.  Up left arete.

Kirby's Last Days V0+ 4+  WA : Central-West Cascades & Sea... : ... : Forest
Start on the lowest crimpers and go up using the left arete. Great Topout and nice problem. If the start on the hand match is a little too easy, do a sit start with your left hand on the arete and your right hand on a sloping side pull (where an obvious flake broke off). This totally adds to the Kirby experience....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

Looks fun. Where is Doja? Is that in the East Forest? That boulder is supposed to have a bunch of cool lines on it.

I am pretty sure the problem you are looking for [Doja (V7)] is on the very left side of the East forest. From the East parking area walk up into the woods maybe 20 meters and then head west in the woods. You will come to a series (3 or 4) of really large (3 story) boulders. I call them the hondo boulders. They are hard to miss. There are some sick high lines and long,long traverses on these. I think Doja is on the extreme southwestern corner of the boulders.
