Upper SE Face

Washington > Okanogan > Burge Mtn (Tonasket)

Description

The farthest east (and slightly east facing) cliff at Burge (just to the right of "The Ledge"). The rock is mostly of very good quality despite the fractured and rubbly upper overhangs. There are several fun and easy bolted face climbs here.

Getting There

Best approached by continuing along the trail past the bouldering area at the base of Green Wall/Middle Earth to the scree slope on the right. Pick your way through the boulders to the top right side of the loose slope above, scramble up the short 3rd class slot on the right to access the first big belay ledge on the left (another 3rd class scramble needed to get down onto the main belay ledge which is about half way up the SE face). 25-30 minute total hike in from the western parking area.
