A long approach, offering unique views of the Icicle River valley and The Enchatments, makes The Mole and The Shrew worthwhile destinations. The rock quality is quite good, but don’t be scared of a little moss on the North Face of the Mole. (After a few more accents that route will be AMAZING!)

Getting There 

Park in the alphabet rock parking lot, then cross the bridge and head to Hook Creek Boulder. Pass hook creek boulder on the right and proceed up the drainage on an established trail to Yellow Jacket Tower. At this point take a right to a less traveled trail and head up through an amazingly beautiful boulder field.

The Mole is the tallest of the quartet of spires and the second one from the left. The North Face is an amazing route with unique views of the Icicle and the Enchantmens. I felt there was not a stand out crux and the climbing throughout both pitches was consistent and very enjoyable.The Climb originally took the left trending crack system after the first pitch. We took the Right and thought it was awesome.There is a very empty summit log at the top waiting to get some new names on it!...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
