Arapilesian Dog 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a WA
: ... : Fun Rock
Arapilesian Dog is a cool route with solid rock and fun moves. The crux comes high moving around the corner near the final bolt. Lower down the climbing is not as steep but there is a hard spot that is made easier by stemming onto the boulder out left. One of the best routes I got on at Mazama....[more] Browse More Classics in WA

Tiny little town. Hit up the general store. They have great home made food. Great salsa especially! Also go to Winthrop, maybe a half hour drive and go to the pizza place near the Hardware and Grocery stores.

The crags of Mazama are just 1.5 miles from the General Store (which is a really cool store that has just about everything you could want). There is a new 'climber's parking' area on the right, very easy access trails, and signs pointing the way to all the crags. All of this was done by Outwardbound and makes the cragging here fun and easy. There is also a bathroom and some of the areas have signs with topos of all the routes!!!

For detailed route info on entire Mazama area (including some limited bouldering & lesser known routes on Washington Pass Liberty Bell spire group) see book "Mazama Rock" by Bryan Burdo. In Seattle can be purchased at Second Ascent & Stone Gardens Climbing Gym in Ballard.
And be sure to enjoy a local beer next to the Methow River at the Old Schoolhouse Brewery in Winthrop.

Lots of new route development in the past couple years. There is a new shop in Mazama called Goats Beard Mountain Supplies that has everything you need gear wise as well as lots of beta for visiting climbers.

Is this area typically ready to be climbed by late June, or do I need to wait longer to let the snow melt more?

We were climbing in mid-March this year, granted we were belaying on snow, but the routes were dry. I'd say by end of April in most years the snow will be gone, with some of the routes on Goat wall being wet in spring. Now, Washington Pass just up the road is a different story...
