Fall bouldering at the Forestlands.

  • Description 

    One of the best bouldering areas in the Icicle, with a good number of developed problems at all grades. Everthing from burly low starts to super sketchy highballs, with landings ranging from great to deadly. High quality featured granite boulders abound, and there are plenty of outliers for when the main areas are crowded.

    Getting There 

    Drive 5.7 miles up Icicle Road past. You will pass Barney's Rubble, an obvious cragging area just off the road on your right. Take the first right after Barney's up a dirt road and park at the end. Hike the obvious trail into the forest, crossing a stream. In 3 minutes you'll come to a clearing and the start of the boulders.

    Backdoor Ass Attack V7 7A+  WA : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : Forestland Boulders
    An obvious problem on the second boulder you come to. Starts on the big juggy rail at the lip of the 45 degree face. Grab the rail, heel hook, yard up to a side pull, slap up to a sloper and get on your feet. Done! There's a cool v8 sit start with a crap undercling for your left and a slopey sidepull for the right. Be careful not to pull too hard on the undercling - it's fragile! Get your feet established and throw for the starting jug. Also on this boulder are several unnamed problems: a ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
