Description

An old aid wall that now hosts a few fine routes. The climbs are a bit dirty, but traffic should make all better. The crag sits a couple hundred feet above the highway above mile post 93.

Be careful not to knock any rocks loose, as the highway is only a steep tumble away.

Getting There

Coming from Leavenworth, pass milepost 93 and park on a spur road that is on your right. Head South into the woods until you reach a ridge line. Or better yet, get back on the road for a quick stroll to where you can catch the ridge there. Follow the boot path up steep ground until it starts to flatten out.

From here you have two options. Make a double rope rap (two 60's should do, or one 70 and you can reach the route anchors) from a manky sun bleached sling on a tree with a rap ring, or continue to a gully and walk to the base of the wall. I'd recommend the first option.
