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.

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

They have said it for years "The best climbing in OR. is in Wa. Sep 9, 2011
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.
