Passing through this week....do most of the routes have good top access?

Are there better spots in Okanogan county that would have good top access? Taking the long way from Spokane to Seattle.

This guide service is based in Mazama and would gladly answer your questions:

Don't forget that Washington Pass is only twenty minutes from Mazama:

Edit: Not sure about access to the anchors, but this is a fun, single-pitch area in Mazama:

theres a few things you could top rope in the fun rock area with some scrambling/easy free soloing to set up the anchor. Its all pretty much sport, not many crack routes.

At the end of the day, heading there to top rope is kind of a waste of time. theres not a ton thats actually anchor accessible and its not even that great of climbing, especially with the myriad of better options all around if you have a parter.

If your really dead set on soloing I would go through leavenworth instead of Mazama because you'll have more options there, or, I would just try to find a parter and do some climbing on goat wall or washington pass.

Most of fun rock is top-rope accessible, it's just tough to tell which route you're at from the top of the climb.

Thanks for the advice...I might head to Winthrop...looks like some good mountain biking then head back south.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
