Description

One of Washington's best high-level sport crag with routes ranging from 5.9 up to 5.14. A great place for a 5.11 or stronger climber to push their limits.

It consists of generally solid, slightly overhanging rock that can sometimes feel slippery. Routes range from approximately 50 feet to 150 feet (15 to 45+ meters). The harder routes are typically extensions or extensions to extensions. Many of the routes in the middle of the wall have permadraws.

In the summer months, the wall goes into the shade around noon.

Getting There

TO GET TO THE TRAILHEAD:
Take Exit 32 off I-90 and drive North toward Mt Si on 436th Avenue SE. Turn Left (West) on North Bend Way. Turn right on Mt Si Road and follow this across the bridge. The trailhead will then be on your left.

FROM THE TRAILHEAD:
Follow the Little Si Trail for around .7 miles until the trail takes a right and you see some cliff faces through the trees to your left. If you see a bench on your right you've passed the British Isles area, but you are right next to World Wall 1.

Thanks Kevin, I just added in your directions. Jun 11, 2014

Please keep in mind the wall access trail is *AFTER* the main portion of the wall. You may be tempted to cut across underneath the wall and go up the steep embankment beneath the right side, but it is not necessary and contributes to erosion. Please continue along the main trail until you reach the big tree stump and take a left up the well-maintained climber's trail. Hopefully some formal signs will be put up/restored soon... Sep 28, 2016
