Description

Dribbles area hosts some of the best and most popular routes in Hyalite, including Dribbles, Silken Slot and Silken Falls. Rarely formed gems like Alex in Wonderland (or Climb Above Dribbles), and Avalanche Gulch are also in this area.

Getting There

The approach usually takes over an hour. Take Hyalite Creek trail (Grotto Falls TH) past the Amphitheater area and continue on. You'll see Fat Chance (WI3) and Thin Chance (WI4)to your left. Continue for about 15-20 minutes where you'll see Arch Falls sign. Stay on Hyalite Creek trail for about another .25 miles or 10-15 minutes. There will be a small creek crossing followed by an open meadow. Look for a trail cutting left and up through the trees just past this meadow. Continue up and approach the climb of your choosing.
