Main Wall

Washington > Northwest Region > Darrington > Spring Mountain

Description

The Main Wall of Spring Mountain.

It is a nice sunny wall with awesome climbing. It stands roughly 5 pitches tall with 3.5 routes running to the top.

The right side is dominated by the Cloven Roof. Which is a massive overhang. There are many harder climbs around the Roof, with one aid line running directly out to the rim of the roof.

On the left, if you follow a faint trail for a bit, you'll get more into an old growth forest that can stay cooler. With some (shaded) 1 and 2 pitch routes to enjoy.

There is so much more potential for additional routes to be cleaned and set on the main wall.

Getting There

Follow the trail up from the pullout. After about 20 minutes, you come to a couple of cairns that you'll pass between. Heading straight up the hill will lead you to the Cloven Roof section. Heading left, through the cairns will take you up to the base of the Main wall.

You can easily find the middle by locating the spring which is at the base of the wall between The Other Side of the Tracks and Erocktica. The Cloven Roof section is about 75-100 yards right of Erocktica.
