Description 

This short approach and easy routes (5.6-5.9), makes this a popular area. With only 4 routes, get here soon and expect crowds on busy days, both watching you and waiting to get on the rock. The rock is the standard metamorphic rock found in this region. Remember to keep the railroad grade clean so bikers and hikers don’t have to go around your gear.

Getting There 

Where the trail from the parking lot connects with the Iron Horse Trail, under 10min from the parking lot, you are lookin at Write-Off Rock.

If you are looking for a good first lead, or a very moderate warm up, this is your route. One of the most popular, if not the most in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

These routes are very well bolted. I don't consider any of them run-out. Great crag to take some new climbers out to, or if you want to do your first sport lead.

Nice area for beginners, nice seating if people want to spectate. There's even a 5.4 on the far left (Bu Rabbit). Beware climbing past the top of the routes...there are some rather large, loose rocks up there. Great Warm-Up spot if you are heading to Nevermind Wall up the road.

And keep your gear clear of the path. Bikes zip through that area pretty often.
