Description

Sunny and dry (it's high desert= BRING PLENTY OF LIQUID) with plenty of shade in the bouldering area and in some places right up to the base of the wall...area is somewhat secluded (town's population is around 1,000) the area is US Forest Service land, as far as I know camping is permitted in the area (Just PLEASE be clean about it!). There are 60 or so routes spread out among 8 or 9 smaller areas (all within half a mile) ranging from 5.6 to 5.11+, mostly sport, trad, some mixed, with a few routes having 2 or 3 pitches, fun clean rock (can't remember what kind off top of my head) with a little bit of slab climbing...areas are as follows:
1)WESTERN FRONT - 14 routes 5.3 to 5.11- mostly single pitch sport
2)THE MAIN WALL - 7 routes 5.7 to 5.11 couple of 2 pitch, 1 or 2 trad
3)THAILAND TRAINING - 3 routes (short wall) 5.10-, 5.10+, 5.11
4)THE JUNGLE GYM - 14 routes 5.7 to 5.11+, single pitch sport w/1 trad
5)THE GREEN WALL - 8 routes 5.5 to 5.10+, most sport, 2 mixed, 1 trad
6)MIDDLE EARTH - 7 routes 5.7 to 5.11-, 3 mixed,2 sport, one 3-pitch
7)THE RAPTOR - 4 routes 5.9+ to 5.11, 3 sport, 1 trad

Getting There

Burge Mtn is about 13 and a half miles up from Tonasket (from Hwy 97) along the Havillah Rd. Turn right onto North Siwash Creek Rd after 12 miles on the Havillah Rd., and follow this gravel road for 1.5 miles (don't turn left at the first road marked "Burge Mtn Rd"). Park along either side of the road (when the cliffs are visible through the trees on the left) and cross the fence at the pass-through stile to approach the cliffs. Both the roadside parking and climbing is on public (Forest Service) land.
