Description

This is a somewhat forgotten rock climbing area that was rediscovered by mixed climbers. The routes are right next to the road!

There are currently plans to rebolt the routes. The bolts on the lines right now are old and rusty and until recently were often covered by moss. Until the bolts are replaced climbers should avoid leading these routes.

A short static rope is useful to help set-up some of the mixed lines.

Getting There

Take Highway 542 from Bellingham to Glacier. Drive another 13.3 miles and turn left on the unpaved Hannegan Pass Road just before crossing the Nooksack River near Milepost 46. If you drive over the river and past the campground, you've gone too far.

Once on the Hannegan Pass Road, drive for two minutes to the crag on the left.
