Welcome to Washington!

Greetings Washington climbers!
Before you consider adding an area or route, please read below.
 DO NOT ADD AN AREA HERE!
 
Sections of Washington: ----------------------- OLY/PAC = OLYMPIC/PACIFIC NW = NORTH-WESTERN CWC = CENTRAL-WESTERN CASCADES SWC = SOUTH-WESTERN CASCADES SEC = SOUTH-EASTERN CASCADES CEC = CENTRAL-EASTERN CASCADES OK = OKANOGAN C = CENTRAL SE = SOUTH-EASTERN NE = NORTH-EASTERN

Do you want to find a climbing area? If so, first look at the WA state map on the right to see which of the 10 sections of Washington it likely lies in. Then click on the area (section) at left. If you know the area's name but not its location, then type the name into the search bar. If the spelling is wrong, use the advanced search and scan through the subareas to each area.

Do you want to add an area? First check to see if the area has already been listed. PLEASE DO NOT ADD NEW AREAS HERE. Instead go to the relevant region and find the appropriate area that would contain your area. If you do not see it listed, then please add your area. Thanks.

Here, in alphabetical order, are 13 of the more popular destinations in Washington:

Once again, to add a new climbing area, look at the map first, and then place the new area in the right section. Do NOT add a new area to the Washington home page (here), instead go to the specific section of Washington and add it there. Be sure also to add complete descriptions and locations to help out your fellow climbers.
 Thank-you.
