Description

This area lies right outside the town of Metaline Falls, Wa. Large, sweeping limestone hover above. The area is very large so sun or shade can be chased all day. The rock is amazingly good limestone with an array of routes to choose from from easy to moderate to crap your pants hard.

Getting There

From the town of Metaline Falls head north up Boundary RD. Once you reach a transformer station on your right there will be another road. Take a right on this road up to the fork. Go right at the fork and you will be at the parking lot. From here you can walk down to the crags.

This place is deserving of more attention, although I hesitate to say so as the remoteness and seclusion are a big part of what makes this place great. I hold that contradiction in both hands as I make it easier for people to find their way to this sleepy corner of Washington.

If you really want to get around you need a copy of Inland Northwest Rock Climbs by Marty Bland. Mountain Gear should still have a few copies of it. There are supposedly 71 bolted routes at the various crags and there is potential for many more. Most of this was bolted by Marty and friends to whom we Spokane climbers must pay out respects.

There is a big hill accross Flume Creek with a massive overhang and several very tall slabs awaiting the cleaning efforts of the next intrepid pioneers. I believe there are still some open projects in the upper 5.14 and possibly 5.15 range at the Arena as well.

This place really could use some more (respectful) traffic. Jun 1, 2017
