Located about midway up the Tieton River Canyon, the Cave has close to 50 routes, nearly all of them sport climbs. The highlight is the Middle Wall, a 100-foot face of blocky, sometimes overhanging entablature rock chock full of 5.11s. The Middle Wall is flanked on either side by lower (~ 40 foot) columns, with Mark's Wall on the left and the Oak Wall on the right.
Heading west on Highway 12, pass the twin bridges over the Tieton at Windy Point. After rounding a rightward bend and coming upon a slow vehicle lane (around MP 175), look up the hill to the right for the crag. Turn left into a gravel parking area directly below the crag, just before another rightward bend in the highway. (There's dirtbag camping by the river here.)

A surprisingly pumpy arete, capped by a small roof. For maximum value, start directly under the first bolt, boulder up on flat-edged crimps, and stay along the arete. For weasel points, start to the right on a flake/rail and angle up and left to the arete.The third bolt can be hard to clip if you don't have your balance right. Try shifting your feet if it seems desperate. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WA
