Description

Phun Rock is a beloved hometown crag that has plenty of family friendly moderates and a handful of enjoyable tougher routes as well. The Phun Rock area is comprised of a handful of walls all accessed from one parking lot including the Main Wall (Phun Rock proper), K9 Crag, Rhinozone, Sunbug Slab, etc. The rock is featured with positive holds and difficulty tends to increase with steepness. Where ungroomed, the rock can be dirty and loose, but luckily after years of traffic on popular routes, most are now clean and solid.

We're very lucky that the Northwest Outward Bound School has graciously allowed climbers to use the parking lot which is on OB's property. Please show your appreciation by not camping at the parking lot, leaving no trace, and using the toilet provided by the Methow Valley Climbers chapter of the WCC.

Finally, Phun Rock has a history of dedicated community members caring for the long-term viability of this backyard resource. After a few generations of slope stabilization structures, local climbers teamed up with the USFS Climbing Rangers and the Access Fund to build long-lasting stone stairs, retaining walls, and belay platforms. Please help us out by treading lightly on these structures and staying on trails.
