Description

This is an artificial rock crag, very similar to the UW Climbing Rock in Seattle, but a little taller, with generally better texture, but worse cracks (nearly all fist-sized), worse landings (hard wood chips versus deep gravel), but more sport clips. It is constructed out of brick, rock and concrete.

Has good bouldering and sport climbing with some less-than-vertical knobby routes, steep face routes with pockets and thin edges, a large roof, overhangs, stemming corners, and aretes.

This is probably the best urban place near Seattle to train for real outdoor rock.
The location has a $1 parking fee Details

Getting There

Located in Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington. It is part of the King County Parks Department.

The crag is just SE of the Velodrome, right off the main road going E-W through the park. It is easier to reach from West Lake Sammamish, where, after turning into the park, it is after about the 4th stop sign. Park in the lot on the north side of the road and walk east a short distance.

The crag is surrounded by a tall steel fence with a gate. The gate is always open.

Solid holds with a variety of options for beginning climbers to the advanced crag master! Routes are abundant so you should not have to worry about waiting to get on a route and the center portion of the spires is home to a comfortable bouldering section.

The spires are short so you can leave your longer ropes at home, five quickdraws will get you comfortably up a lead, and the walls show no signs of crumbling so smearing is a safe way to go!
