Description

This Crag has it all...sunny, shady, crowded and secluded. Just pick the day of the week and the time of day then live with what you get. It's a nice crag and worth a stop by on a Tuesday! The rock is granite and there are over 70 route! All routes can be top roped.

Getting There

From I-90 take exit 283 B (Freya St/Thor St) go North on Freya St, drive 2.4 mi. Take a right on Euclid Ave. and drive 1.9 mi. Euclid will turn into E. Upriver Dr. Look for John H. Shields Park on the left just after the road begins following the Spokane River. The large wall facing the river is Main Wall.

Sorry I forgot the name of this guide book. I even bought one, but moved and can't find it yet. Made my purchase last year at Mountain Gear and went to REI to find another to be told it was out of print. Here is the only pic I have of it for Secondary Face which is a nice shady spot to climb on those sunny days.


One other thing, I know it is common to call this park Minnehaha, but it is John C. Shields park named after an officer who I believe was killed in the line of duty. Would be respectful if the name was changed on here. Jun 19, 2016

What's the most complete guidebook for the routes in this area? If there is one it'd be nice to have a book in hand when out there! Thanks a lot, new to the area and stoked about the ease of access. Jan 25, 2016
Hello I'm a portlander coming into town for a project! Looking for a post work climbing partner for April 13 - 17th. Flying into town for work, so packing light. I'll have draws, harness, and climbing shoes.

Email if you want a partner - mzteoh@gmail.com
