Description

Keechelus Ridge is a small area (about 32 routes) -- primarily sport climbing, with a few mixed and a couple of trad routes. The views are great and the shade gets better in the late afternoon. July is usually mosquito season for that elevation, so bring bug repellent.

Getting There

Take exit 54 off i-90, go north (cross i-90) toward the Gold Creek sno park area and take the next available right. This is Road 4832 which will lead you east, parallel to i-90. Take this road for 4 miles. It will turn to gravel and go uphill. Take the prominent left fork--this is the second left turn on this road. Go another 3.25 miles until you see a small spur road to your left followed immediately by a small parking area to your right. Park in the parking area, cross the road and hike up the spur road for about 15 minutes until you get to a wide flat area with a great view. Just as the road levels off and starts going slightly downhill, look for a cairn and a small but obvious trail leading right (north) into the forest: hike this trail for another 10 minutes to a rocky area.  Many people mistakenly turn downhill at the first rocky area and end up bushwhacking.  Instead, stay on the good trail past that first rocky area - the trail reenters the forest and goes steeply up hill for another minute or two.  At the 2nd rocky area the main trail makes a sharp right turn.  Stay on this obvious trail as it skirts the south side of the rock formation, until you come to the top of West Wall.

The gravel road is in decent shape -- mostly wide, shallow potholes.
