Description Suggest change

Sunny and dry 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 100 or so routes spread out among 13 smaller areas (all within half a mile) ranging from 5.2 to 5.11, mostly sport, some mixed and trad, with a few routes having 2 or 3 pitches. The main areas are as follows (left to right): 

1)WESTERN FRONT - 32 routes 5.3 to 5.11 mostly single pitch sport 

2)THE MAIN WALL - 11+ routes 5.5 to 5.10+ couple of 2 pitch, 1 or 2 trad 

3)THAILAND TRAINING WALL- 3 routes (short wall) 5.10- to 5.11-, 

4)JUNGLE GYM - 14 routes 5.7 to 5.11+, single pitch sport w/1 trad 

5)THE GREEN WALL - 8+ routes 5.2 to 5.10+, most sport, 2 mixed, 1 trad 

6)MIDDLE EARTH - 7 routes 5.6 to 5.11-, 3 mixed, 4 sport, one 3-pitch 

7)RAPTOR WALL - 6 routes 5.9+ to 5.11, 1 mixed, 4 sport, 1 trad 

8)THE LEDGE - 5 routes 5.3 to 5.5 - Fun, clean sport climbing

9)UPPER SE FACE - 6 routes 5.4 to 5.8, all sport.

(Admin's note); All the sub-crags at Burge have at least a good route or two worth doing, but not all have easy access. For a comparison - especially if you're traveling with small children;

EASY (short approach with relatively flat bases) - The Green Wall, Lower Western Front, The Jungle Gym.

MODERATE (boulder field approach, mostly flat bases) - Little Pine Rock, The Main Wall, Thailand Training Wall, Middle Earth, Raptor Wall.

DIFFICULT (long approach and/or some scrambling required to sometimes uneven bases) - Upper Western Front, The Ledge, North Canyon and Upper SE, S & SW Faces.

Getting There Suggest change

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 at the small aspen grove (where the cliffs are barely 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.
