Description

Mt Washington is one of 3 major sub-areas at Exit 38 off the I-90 corridor east of Seattle. A Discover pass is required to park in the trailhead parking lot.

A multitude of mini-crags can be found in these areas offering routes from 5.5 to 5.12+. Depending on the area you can find sun or shade. Some of the steeper routes are known to seep after rain.

Getting There

From the trailhead parking lot take the trail closest to the restroom. Go uphill and take a right onto a gravel road. This joins up with another gravel road (keep going straight, don't take the hairpin turn). After a few minutes, you will see two trails leading into the forest--take the second one. Someone carved Mt WA into the right hand tree so you won't miss it. This is the trail that takes you to the Bob's Wall area and you will pass a few crags along the way.
