The Methow Valley Climbers, a chapter of the Washington Climbers Coalition, respectfully asks visiting climbers to NOT camp or sleep in your vehicles anywhere along the paved section of Lost River Road or in the Fun Rock parking lot ... Please use a blue bag when on route and take all of your trash home. We thank you for taking responsibility during your visit to help keep climbers in good relations with the local community. Welcome to the valley and safe climbing.
From the USFS:
When planning your visit to the Methow Valley, please choose an appropriate campsite and use established toilets, or pack it out in areas without toilets. The roadside pullouts below the Goat Wall and Gate Creek are NOT considered sustainable places to camp due to proximity to the Methow River and lack of toilets.
Please see the uploaded map "Camping for Climbers" for campgrounds ($8-12 per night) and low-impact FREE dispersed areas with toilets within a few miles of your favorite crag. Free sites include: Goat Creek and Yellowjacket SnoParks (April-October only), and dispersed sites west of Monument Creek Trailhead.
This is a newly developed area, so be careful of falling rocks when rappelling or going off route. It is advised to wear a helmet while climbing, belaying, or sitting at the base of the climbing area.
Rest and belay areas are shaded while most of the climbs are in the sun.
A 60 meter rope is sufficient, but tie a knot at the end of the rope as a safety precaution as a couple routes will require the entire length of the rope.
Follow the hiking trail up past Sunbug Slab, staying left at the sign for A-Wall. Pass a small instruction slab on your left, and continue up the main hiking trail another 200-300 yards or so to a junction and a sign that says "Mazama". Turn left here to leave the hiking trail and traverse past cairns on an open bench for another ~200 yards until the trail cuts right into the woods and switchbacks up to the crag, meeting the wall at Hangdoggers go to Heaven.
