does anyone have any information about the bouldering and top rope walls along the east bank of the Columbia river in Wenatchee? i have found three sets of bolts along the walking path about half way between the black and tan bridges, allong with at least 6 or 7 large boulders. the other anchor is on a 50 ft wall further north right next to bimbo beach.

RE:2007 Matt McMurrey post :) - Minihaha is in Spokane Washington. Google maps has the area labeled John C Shields Park. Its north of the Spokane River off E Upriver Drive across the street from Upriver Dam Reservoir. Best place in the area for top rope, also good bouldering. Good training grounds for Mountaineer clubs and easy to get a few climbs in during a lunch break for many in the area. Jun 12, 2015
Is this a good place to climb mid-summer. Hows the weather around this time? thanks Sep 21, 2013

Just a shot in the dark here but does anyone know of any rock on the East/ South East side of the Olympic Peninsula? Will be back that direction in a month and if the rain breaks it would be nice to get a session in... Dec 3, 2012

Washington is an incredibly beautiful state.
The Cascades, with tall volcanoes and tumbling glaciers. The rocky coastline and rain forests. The sprawling orchards of Central Washington, all combine to make this Great state a more than worthwhile place to visit. Sep 24, 2006
