Description Suggest change

Region along State Highway 2, from Monroe to Stevens Pass, which includes the Skykomish River Valley. The valley has great bouldering, sport, and trad climbing. Most of the climbable rock is granite, but the rock at No Name and nearby crags is instead similar to that at Little Si in North Bend.

Getting There Suggest change

All of these areas will be accessed from state highway 2, coming either from the west, through Monroe, or from the east, from Leavenworth and over Stevens Pass.
