Description

Also known as Governor Lister Cliff, this is a little sandstone cliff just above Chuckanut Drive. It is an overhanging wall with multiple routes for sport climbers. Lots of bolted up routes. Usually fairly uninhabited during the weekdays and even on the weekends you might see a handful of people there. Climbs range from 5.5 to 5.12 and from 30 to 70 feet. Some of the rock even stays dry during rainy weather! Great place for a day trip.

Getting There

From Bellingham, take Chuckanut Dr south past Larrabee St Park, go a little past mile marker 12 (0.2 mi, just around a sharp bend) and you will see a turn off on a corner marked with arrows.

Pull over to the right and park. Cross the road to the giant boulder and go up the trail. The trail meanders up gullies, crossing creeks over mossy old growth logs, then has a few switchbacks and a mossy slab. Go up the fixed rope and then the trail levels out and you'll be there. Turn left here to contour to the base. 15 minutes.
