Lincoln Park

Washington > Northeast Corne… > Spokane Area


Spokane’s new dry-tooling area! 60 feet of sweet overhanging basalt right in the middle of Spokane. Conrad Anker climbed here and was amazed at how good the rock was for dry tooling. The current routes are stiff M6 and M7, but easier routes are on the way.

Getting There

It’s probably easiest to follow the map location your first time out. The parking lot is not well-marked. Take Perry St. south to 18th, turn left. (This becomes Southeasy Blvd.) At .5 miles, look for a parking lot in the trees on the left. Take the paved path right fork. When it forks again, go left for the top of the cliff, or right to get to the base. It’s about 400 ft. past the fork in the trail.

[Hide Comment] great number of routes! thank you, Scott, for the amount of work you have put into this place! now that it is getting colder, beware setting top rope routes, as the rocks and grass are very slippery at the top. Also, if you are leading either of the two left bolted routes bring gear to clean the route and rappel/lower off as there are only bolt hangers. (If anyone wants to donate rappel hangers or the like, I will be putting up some chains and or rappel anchors tomorrow, Nov 20th, 2018) Nov 19, 2018

[Hide Comment] A total gem. Thanks to all who made this happen and the TLC that went into it! Definitely highest and best use for the area. A sign posted up top might help deter littering that collects at the base. Jan 14, 2019
