I'm separating this out to make an easy distinction between the bouldering and the alpine/trad in Icicle Creek.

Some of the best bouldering in the state can be found up in Icicle. The Forestland Boulders, Mad Meadows, and plenty of outlying boulders provide a wealth of terrain to test one's self.

Getting There 

Take a left at the West end of town, and follow the road up Icicle Creek.

The Central Washington Bouldering guide gives mileage to the various areas from this intersection, so unless otherwise noted that's where the distances are measured from.

One of the better lines at Bridge Creek, The Slot has great movement, is aesthetic, and has solid, fun holds. The rock is finer grain than that found in the first cluster of boulders. Start sitting or crouched with your hands on two horizontal crimps, and your feet on low chips trying not to touch the pad beneath you.
