|Many new routes have been added and the old ones upgraded and cleaned in 2015. Plenty of variety for all levels of climbing ability. Longest multi pitch sport routes in the area. Beautiful setting overlooking Long Lake and close to Spokane.|

|Access update....All routes near and north of the state parking lot are on state land. Highway Rock and Banana Split Dome are on two separate pieces of private property. Access is permissible for the upper half of Highway Rock (The Apron) and Banana Split Dome as this is on a larger piece of land owned by a landowner that has given permission to climb. However, the base of Highway Rock is on a small four acre piece of land that is off-limits per this land owner. Please stay off the land at the base of Highway Rock/The Apron. This makes many new sport routes inaccessible. Please respect this land owner's wishes and do not climb or be at the base of Highway Rock. Highway Rock is the big slab area close to the highway with the sweeping overhang in the middle. This includes the climbs left and right of Orion. If access is granted in the future, we will update on here.|

As of summer 2016, the owner has posted signs all over the base of Tum Tum for no trespassing. Super lame to have someone going there and bolting the crap out of private land and not keeping a low profile - you really blew it for those of us that enjoyed the area!
And the bolted cracks too - just an incredible shame and lack of ethics and judgement.
Should I go on about how the "developer" didn't even research MP and climbed a route already done and posted a year before? You guys are bolting over an area that has been climbed because you aren't reading up on the history of the area. Don't make me chop this - get yourself under control and read some old guide books before screwing up this rock more.
