Description

Large granite mountain, roughly in the shape of an elongated, ridged dome.

Getting There

Drive S. from Darrington. Take the left fork of the Clear Creek logging road, about five miles from the pavement. After crossing the second of two gravelly washes, park and head up the dry streambed (the first is a bit rough for some cars, but if you park here it is only about 1/3 of a mile to the second one where most people park).

To reach the base of the walls, climb a thousand feet on the granite slab approach known as the Granite Sidewalk.

The rocky wash on the drive in is pretty rough for 2WD. No problem, just park there and add 15 minutes of road walking. Problem is, there is only space for one car without blocking the turnaround. Better plan is to get your buddy with AWD to bring his rig! Jul 31, 2017

We went up there yesterday, clearing logs in the road. We started the approach, but we backed off after hiking 15-20 minutes. The rock is still seeping pretty significantly, and with the angle of the slab, we thought it would be a pretty wet and sketchy descent in the dark.
Unless you are experienced at getting up and down the Granite Sidewalk, consider waiting to try this route until Darrington is in summer conditions. May 27, 2017
