Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionA handful of routes north of the gravel frontage road in Newhalem. Lots of sun, but routes tend to seep. Climbing in permitted in the Ross Lake Recreation Area (part of North Cascades National Park complex), but not on Seattle City Light property. Not all of the routes visible from the road are part of the recreation area.
Respect the small area that may still be signed off. Details
Presently, routes to the right of the route ";;Kate Moss";; are off limits due to fire damage in Summer 2015. So, this should not affect the routes presently listed here. But, respect the signs that identify this area. Thank you.
Getting ThereDriving State Route 20 through Newhalem, a gravel frontage road runs parallel to the north of the highway. Park near turbine "sculpture"/ garden area across from general store. West of parking area, look for passage up to the boulder field near the electrical tower. Scramble up boulders to the rock wall featuring a large right facing corner corner. "Pizza Crack" 5.10c starts from a rock pedestal right of the big corner system.
