Description 

This area lies along the Snake River outside of Pullman, Washington. It has mostly toproping with some fun sport routes and a few trad lines. It is small, but if you live in the area worth it to check out. There is also fun cliff jumping.


Getting There 

For good directions consult the Marty Bland guidebook or the washington rock climbing book. Also you can call the WSU or U of Idaho outdoor programs.

Yes, you should absolutely buy Inland NorthWest rock by Bland because it supports route development. However, here are the directions per Google from Pullman to Granite Point.

1. Head southwest on N Grand Ave toward W Main St 184 ft
2. Turn right at W Main St 0.6 mi
3. Turn left at Old Wawawai Rd/Wawawai-Pullman Rd
Continue to follow Wawawai-Pullman Rd 11.5 mi
4. Turn right at Wawawai Grade Rd 5.8 mi
5. Continue on Wawawai River Rd 2.0 mi

In addition to climbing and bouldering there is cliff diving and great fishing. while I was bouldering last weekend I saw a guy pull 5 good sized Bass from the reservoir

If you are feeling adventurous, there are a few routes to be found on the other side of the river/lake. In 1975 a few of us inflated a boat and made our way over there for some TRing. Caution on poison oak and porcupines.
