Curtis on th Post Wall


This area has surprisingly good granite and fun routes. A mix of trad and sport with easy approaches.

Getting There 

From Downtown Spokane, get on I-90 going east and head to the Idaho State Line which is about 16 miles away. Take Exit 5, The Spokane Street/City Center Exit, and take a right and head south on Spokane Street across the bridge to Parkway Road. Take a right here, and head down about 400 yards to the Q'emiln Park entrance. This pay station is open seasonally, and you can usually get in past a closed up station in the spring and fall. If you don't wish to pay during the summer months, park here and walk in. Once in, you will see a sign for the Q'emiln Park Trail System. The crag is directly west of the sign.

Jude 24 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ E3 5c  ID : Q'Emlin Park : Death Fall Wall
The difficult part of this climb is the bouldery moves down low over a roof. The climbing eases off a bit after that but becomes run out to the bolts. Clipping the 3rd bolt could be pretty scary if you aren't in a good stance as there may be groundfall potential.Per Scott's comments I've edited the route description to no longer reflect the R rating that this climb used to carry as it has been retrobolted to be a safer lead. Thanks Scott....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID

This page could use a little updating for newer routes and overall clarity. A lot of the area's routes only list them alphabetically, and are missing some of the routes. Adding more information to be able to use the Left to Right tool would make some of these areas that have a lot of routes close together more discernible. This page is already 70% there compared to the local guide book (which is already out of date). If the trouble has been taken to put this information on the web, might as well update and refine it.

Also, I'm pretty sure its "Q'Emiln" not "Q'Emlin"
