Description

Exit 38, home to an abundance of bolted routes, is nestled in the I-90 corridor just out of Seattle. A multitude of mini-crags can be found in this area offering routes from 5.5 to 5.12+. Depending on the area you can find sun or shade but some of the steeper routes are known to seep after rain.

For the Farside crags, see the separate listing under "North Bend".

Getting There

Take I-90 East from Seattle and take Exit 38. At the end of the exit take a right. To access Mt Washinton and the assoiated crags park at a left bend in the road near the entrance to a gravel road which goes up a small hill on the right. Or if you want to pay the fee drive up the gravel road to the offical trail head. For the main areas continue past the bend and go a bit further untill you see a large parking lot on the left that is right next to the bridge. The trail picks up on the right side of the brdige as you look up the hill towards the crag. The approach is pretty straightforward with a bit of elevation gain on a well trodden trail. Once go under a tall railroad bridge you will start to see walls on your right. Continue on the trail to the top of the bridge which is Iron Horse trail, from which you can find everything.
