Description 

This Crag has it all...sunny, shady, crowed and secluded. Just pick the day of the week and the time of day then live with you get. It's a nice Crag and worth a stop by on a Tuesday! The Rock is Granite and there is over 70 routes all routes can be top roped off hangers on top. This is a inner city crag with all the down falls that come with a crag like this. BAD PEOPLE DO BAD THINGS.


Getting There 

From I-90 take exit 283 B (Freya St/Thor St) go North on Freya St, drive 2.4 mi. Take a right on Euclid Ave. and drive 1.9 mi. Euclid will turn into E. Upriver Dr. Look for John H. Shields Park on the left just after the road begins following the Spokane River.

Featured Route For Minnehaha
After placing my first piece above the roof.  I also used a crash pad in case I had to bail off before placing.

Don Quixote 5.10c/d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b  WA : Northeast Corner & Spokane : ... : Minnehaha
A prominat crack on the Don Quixote wall. Starts with short wide section that can be liebacked or takes a few good fist jams. Then the first crux of the route is pulling the roof. Although there is good holds and a bomber hand jam above. Jam through good hands and fists up to a hook for a handhold. Next move into some great fingerlocks, a ringlock, and finally a shallow handjam up top....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

DIRECTIONS: From I-90 take exit 283 B (Freya St/Thor St) go North on Freya St, drive 2.4 mi. Take a right on Euclid Ave. and drive 1.9 mi. Euclid will turn into E. Upriver Dr. Look for John H. Shields Park on the left just after the road begins following the Spokane River. The main face is obvious from here.
