Stay on the trails and be sure to clean your shoes/equipment when you leave .
Lava Point can get hot in the summer, but you can chase shade for most of the day. The Dream Wall stays shaded in the morning, and the Lava Wall catches shade in mid to late afternoon. In low snow years, the crag can open up as early as February.
The crag has a great view of Rimrock Lake and the upper Tieton basin. Turkey vultures often circle above the crag.
From Highway 12, turn right (if heading west) or left (if heading east) onto Soup Creek Road, FS # 1305. The road is just west of the major Tieton Road turnoff used to reach the east end of Rimrock Lake.
Follow Soup Creek Road, staying left at all possible turns (except for one gated road). You will end up on FS # 344; drive this to the end. Park on the shoulder, leaving room at the end for others to turn around. A rutted four-wheel track continues into the woods, but please don't drive this. The track leads into a beautiful, fragile meadow area that should be preserved.
