Description

East-facing sandstone cliffs above the Elwha river (note that this means the cliffs are on the west-side of the river!). Fun climbing with a variety of styles from blocky roofed jug hauls to thin and technical slabs to wild dynamic climbing.

Getting There

Cross the Elwha river bridge on hwy 112 then look for the parking along the left side of the highway approx. 1/4 mile after the bridge. Drive past the parking then turn in to the small lot to angle park. Then hike the Adventure Route to the power line road, head downhill (left) on the power line road until you see an access road on the right with a sign that says "No motorized vehicles" or something of that sort.

Regarding approach, take the path back toward the river until you come to the power line clearing, turn left here to go downhill. The path begins again on your right near where the clearing begins to fill in with brush and become impassable. Follow this trail until it shoots you out of the woods near the river. Proceed to your left (downriver) on a non-distinct path, leading along the woodline and eventually back into the woods. The wall is about 3 minutes into the woods from there.

Aside: This area seems significantly sandbagged either because of deterioration of the sandstone over time, the grungyness of the current state of the wall given the lack of traffic here, the age of the routes (older routes generally tend to be harder), or the badassery of the FAs who established these lines. Everything felt at least 2 grades harder than the MP ratings would indicate. Jun 11, 2017
