Description

Right on the side of the Skykomish River. There are also several nice boulders in the forest, before reaching the railroad tracks.

Though this might not apply to climbers, see the comment below about placing bolts that may be nearly or fully submerged during high water periods.

Getting There

Drive past the parking for the Lower Town Wall, past the Lower Lump and cross the railroad tracks. Continue about 0.6-0.7 miles until reaching the gate on the left (i.e., river) side with a sign saying "Forks of the Sky" State Park. Park near here and walk the road-trail downhill towards the river. The trail turns west at the railroad tracks to parallel the tracks. Around here look for several boulders in the woods on the right. For the main boulders, follow the railroad tracks further west (down river), looking for boulders down and left. After about 100 yards, some side trails down left will appear.
