A few boulders along with 3 cliff bands, two on the west side of the creek and one on the east. The on the east is a huge choss pile while the west side is quite a bit better. Climbing is best when water levels are low.

Getting There 

Park at the intersection of Skyline and 40th ave West. walk down the hill to the creek. There is climbing on both sides of the creek you just have to look around for it

I am working on cleaning up the online page for this area. I will add in info on problems from Pete's guide book. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Parking for Sanctuary is not at 40th west and Skyline. It is a gravel pullout about 0.3 miles east on Skyline from 40th West.

This map shows the directions from the parking spot to the beginning of the trail. Trail is marked pretty well with faded yellow flagging, and was not hard to follow.
