The large slabs just below the highest of the domes visible from the road.

Slab climbing abounds here. There is also great potential for sport climbing development on the steep face at the bottom.

Bring a large brush if you plan on climbing these routes. They are mossy, but the rock is very featured. Many knobs and dishes.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, head east along the road to the large clearing. You can't miss the Apron. Bushwhack in to the base, and scramble up to the slabs on either the left or the right side of the steep face. The scrambling is mostly 3rd class.

Right side of the "Apron". Ground level to the highway. Follow the newly added path along the base of the cliff. Route starts behind a boulder. Thin face climbing and sequential movement. Kudos if you get the onsight!...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

The brush has been recently cleared away and getting to the base is now quite easy.

This area has been seeing a ton of development lately, and is home to multiple multipitch sport routes as well as a handful of single-pitch routes.
