Description

Rough Cut Wall is the lesser traveled of the two crags at Gate Creek. It's a beautiful wall in an awesome setting, but suffers from a lack of traffic, untapped potential, and a short season.

Because of difficulty crossing the creek, access is easiest mid/late summer through fall. It's quite nice in late fall thanks to full sun for most of the day, while neighboring Fire Wall has a pretty short window of sun mid-afternoon.

Ryan Triplett started this page in 2008, and I took it over in 2017 in hopes that his routes (and the whole crag) will get the traffic they deserve, and start cleaning up a bit.

Getting There

Park past the Goat Wall just before crossing Gate Creek, as for Fire Wall. Take the Fire Wall trail (faint trail ~50m before Gate Creek). When nearly to Fire Wall you will cross the Creek to your left (west). The crossing I prefer is right up against a buttress between Fire Wall and Rough Cut, known as Hydro Power Tower. Two large fir trees mark the crossing. Not much of a trail from here to the base of the wall, but it's short and obvious.
