Watch for loose rock on the less traveled routes, the bassalt can be weak in spots. This is especially true of the routes to the north of the Pit.
Most of the routes are well protected and not run out, many of them also have 'biners to lower off of on the chains.
Plan on Climbing in the Pit (South-west of the parking area) if you want to climb before June as the main wall and lower lying areas are really wet. (It's called Deep Creek for a reason)
Early in the year the mosquitoes will suck you dry and the stinging nettle is tall, after about July things are much nicer in the canyon. By August the bugs are gone.
Another nice thing, the main wall stays dry in the rain except for the tops of a few routes.
Also, there are no bathrooms here, the nearest are at the gas station on 9 mile road at the bottom of the hill, or at the ORV park just north about 2 miles on Inland Road.
Go north on Divison to Francis.
Take a left onto Francis and follow it until it splits, bear right onto Nine Mile Road.
Stay on Nine Mile until you come to Seven Mile Road, take a left.
Follow Seven Mile a few miles to State Park Drive. Go right, follow the dirt road to the parking area.
If you hit the town of Nine Mile Falls you've gone too far. The whole way is pretty well signed until you get to State Park Drive, it's just after a sign that says "Welcome to Riverside State Park" and just before a bridge over a small draw.
