Description

The Paradise Boulders is one of the most beautiful locations to climb in the Skykomish valley. Consisting of fantastic climbs ranging from v0 to v10, there is something for everyone in this serene talus field. Most of the climbs stay in the sun, but a cool draft of air blows out from under the mountain, keeping you cool even on the hotter days. Keep a lookout for mother nature's fridges.

Getting There

Drive 6.5 miles from NE Old Cascade Highway and park in a pullout on the right. Walk down a steep marked trail to a small creek crossing. Water shoes can be helpful, but they are not necessary. The creek is about 15 feet across and 6 inches deep. After crossing the creek, walk up stream for 100 yards until the rocky shore ends and a path appears on your right. From there you can see the talus field above you. There are plenty of paths leading to all the different boulders in the area. There is also a path connection between the Prospect and Paradise Boulders.
