Limestone cave and overhanging walls. Sun at 2pm and gets hot. Seeps in spring. Some choss, some bullet hard. All types of climbing and holds represented. Routes start at 11a and go up.

Getting There Suggest change

From Kettle Falls, WA. take highway 25 north to the town of Marcus. Continue past Marcus 3.2 mi and take a right up the hill when you see a brown brick house on your right. You'll see the cliff as well. Follow the logging road uphill and look for a large limestone boulder and cairns on your right. This marks the trail to the cliff. Don't block the road when you park.
