Description Suggest change

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.

PLEASE NOTE: the climbing in the Elwha River canyon is a privilege that can be taken away. The climbing resides within an area that is part of the river restoration project following the dam removal and is currently managed by Olympic National Park. As such, no camping, no fires and no dogs are allowed at the crags. Help us protect access, camp and have a fire somewhere else and leave your dogs at home.

Getting There Suggest change

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.
