Description

This is the large slab directly up and east from the Cookie Cliff. Home to many good slab routes from two to four pitches with the majority being three to four pitches. Routes range from 5.7 to 5.11
Not many people use this cliff, however, it is a great place to go if you are looking for moderate climbs down canyon. There are many of them here at the Cookie Sheet!

Getting There

Park at the Cookie and walk up the talus to the right. Or park at the small pullout between the Cookie and Knobby Wall, and walk up the old road until you reach the talus. Follow the cairns. At the top of the talus head to the right and gain the left side of the slab.

Great little area with a bunch of moderate and well protected apron/slab routes. Approach, bolts and anchors are all solid. Bob and Clint did a wonderful job here. Hats off to you both! Apr 26, 2010
Most of the routes on the main face of the Cookie Sheet were put up between 2006 and 2008 by Dan Dingle, David Whitelaw, and Bob Steed. Dingle and Whitelaw, residents of Seattle, made 6 trips down here during those years to work on these routes. In spring of 2007 they met Bob Steed and the three joined forces to work on the development here. Later Bob and Clint added some of the crack lines located in the woods below the slab. Nov 26, 2012

Fun moderate slab climbs. Gets sun until mid-day. Good place to climb if you are all burnt out from crack/ow climbing.

The first half of the second pitch of The Dark Side still felt like polished 5.7 to us, not 5.5. The second half of pitch two was 5.5. May 20, 2013

The satellite approach image is super helpful, but parking is at E2 sign not M2. However, we parked at Cascades Picnic Area and walked over. There's a bathroom at the picnic area. We saw 4-5 ropes stuck and hanging on the wall. Not sure who left so many ropes there. Jul 5, 2017
