Toats Coulee Middle Fork Crag from creek

Description 

TOATS COULEE MIDDLE FORK CRAG is a high (5250' elevation), remote and small area located at the SE edge of the Pasayten Wilderness along the Long Swamp Road (36 miles west of Tonasket and about 18 miles west of Loomis). The 150' tall granite cliff is on the right hand side just before where the road crosses the Middle Fork of Toats Coulee Creek. There is a lovely camp ground along the creek and fine views of Windy Peak to the north.

There are two possible approaches;
1) Park just before the creek (turn out on the left across from the “curve ahead” sign) and hike due north up the trail-less slope, short and steep, for about 10 minutes to the base of the SW facing cliff. The approach is through a lodge pole and aspen forest past the huge boulder to an open upper grassy slope. Veer left when you come to the open grassy band to reach the base of the South Face.

2) Park along the creek at the campground and hike east up the steep boulder and tree covered slope to the base of the West face.

The top can be reached easily from either end. The rock is fine quality granite, and the climbing ranges from the easier broken ledges on the right end of the south face, to the steep and blank west face. Be aware when lowering, as many of the routes are long and/or don’t start at the base.


Getting There 

TOATS COULEE CRAG is located along the Long Swamp road/access (FS road #39) in the Northern Pasaytens, 36 miles west of Tonasket (about 18 miles west of Loomis).
