DescriptionThe rocks are very sun-beaten and depending on snow run-off, water levels can be high and quite chilly.
The land owners are fine with climbers who are respectful Details
Do not park directly across from mile marker 33 as stated in the guidebook. Just west of the mile marker is a better parking spot which lends to afternoon shade and only adds a few dozen meters of approach. There are private property signs but the land owners in the area expressed concern only with illegal activity and messes; pack out what you pack in and try to leave no trace.

April 19, 2017: Weekday access to the Gold Bar boulders has now reopened following a temporary closure to ensure public safety during harvest activities associated with the Dyno timber sale. In partnership with Access Fund and Washington Climbers Coalition, DNR preserved access to much of the road network hikers and climbers use to access the Gold Bar boulders. Learn more about getting outdoors on DNR-managed lands on our website: dnr.wa.gov/go
Getting ThereTake highway 2 east or west and just before (if heading east) or just after (if heading west) mile marker 33, park in the gravel pull-out. Walk east about 2 telephone poles worth of distance and on the other side of the road there is a faint path that will lead you beyond a private property sign. Follow that path to the beach where the climbing is found. The first massive boulder you see during approach is the Beach Boulder. Further east will lead you to Moon and others in development.
