Description

This area has surprisingly good granite and fun routes. A mix of trad and sport with easy approaches.

Getting There

From Downtown Spokane, get on I-90 going east and head to the Idaho State Line which is about 16 miles away. Take Exit 5, The Spokane Street/City Center Exit, and take a right and head south on Spokane Street across the bridge to Parkway Road. Take a right here, and head down about 400 yards to the Q'emiln Park entrance. This pay station is open seasonally, and you can usually get in past a closed up station in the spring and fall. If you don't wish to pay during the summer months, park here and walk in. Once in, you will see a sign for the Q'emiln Park Trail System. The crag is directly west of the sign.

This page could use a little updating for newer routes and overall clarity. A lot of the area's routes only list them alphabetically, and are missing some of the routes. Adding more information to be able to use the Left to Right tool would make some of these areas that have a lot of routes close together more discernible. This page is already 70% there compared to the local guide book (which is already out of date). If the trouble has been taken to put this information on the web, might as well update and refine it.

Also, I'm pretty sure its "Q'Emiln" not "Q'Emlin" Mar 21, 2014
The "official" name is Q'emiln (rapids, whitewater) which marks an ancient salmon spearing site at the nearby Post Falls --- but anytime you try to express a native american word in roman text it's a craspshoot.
The local guide is out of print -- it was just too expensive -- but there is an excellent state-of-the-art, online version at postfallsidaho.org/prparks.…
There's phone reception most places in the park so you can smart phone it on the spot --- or download for free if you wish. Enjoy.......... Jul 8, 2014
This was a great climb, easy approach, great location and solid anchors. You can walk up to the top of the walls and set up rappelling or a top rope if you don't want to lead climb. Really enjoyed it, happy we found it! Jul 10, 2014

How are the crowds here? Do people climb here enough so that it would be likely to meet partners by just showing up in the parking area? I'm here for a month, I have a rope and a rack but no partners yet. Jul 18, 2014

This is the most updated info for Post Falls. It is straight from the City of Post Falls web site. Follow Kootenai Climbers on Facebook for more information. Apr 21, 2017
