Albeit some dirt, dust, cobwebs and natural rockfall this is the best continuous quality wall at Tieton; unless there's some secret hidden wall I didn't find.
One 70M rope works great at this crag, as to not have to worry about the ends barely reaching...Especially for the routes Rhythm and Sorrow and Colonade - through Firestone (left to right) and Keel Hauled.

I wanted to report the washout of Wildcat Rd./NFS-1306. This is a primary access into a number of Tieton River Rocks areas including "The Caldera", "The Honeycomb Buttress", and "Wild Cat Wall".
My friend and I were headed to The Caldera for bouldering and found a cement blockade in the middle of the road at between .8 and 1.2 miles up the road (guess from google maps). Upon returning to Naches and visiting with the ranger at the NFS station, we were shown the pictures of the washout. It pretty much took the whole road at one of the creek pipe bypasses (aka not vehicle passable at all).
The ranger told us there is no money in the budget to fix the road this year or next year. So we are looking at maybe June/July 2016 for reopening of the road.
Just an FYI. Expect to require hiking your gear into the crag.
PS I'm going to post this on the crag pages as well as a heads up for people.
