Looking for Information on Squire Creek Walls

In September my friend and I climbed on Illusion Wall (Darrington Area) and when we topped out we noticed this beautiful wall behind it. 48.198200, -121.651217

I was wondering if anyone had any information on the wall or knows if there are routes or any current development being done.  There is nothing on MP or in Blake H's book.

Judging from the GPS, looks like you're referencing the rock above and left of chicken shit gully and dick ridge? It gets climbed occasionally but from my knowledge there are no modern (non-run out and not buttonhead protected) routes up there.

Kyle it does sound that that is the wall I'm referencing.  https://web.stanford.edu/~clint/squirecw/index.htm

"no modern (non-run out and not buttonhead protected) routes up there". Sounds like some good character building.

Character building indeed. Typical D town. I think getting over to the south side base can be the crux.

My gf and I were up last year, there is a trail and finding it is almost mandatory to get to chicken shit gully. Dave's route is fun as hell and well bolted although rock fall has damaged some hangers.  Above this is Salish ridge with the old jet fighter crash and a classic called Flight of the Falcons on Salish Peak. Center stage on roan wall can be linked with flight of the Falcons on Salish peak.

The Skeena route alluded to in the previous post is a good one. There is a good trail, but no beta on line (we had to stumble upon it). Beta in this valley is highly variable. Where absent on MP, most will be found mining old posts on CascadeClimbers.com. Embrace the exploration, its worth it!

Cascade Climbers is a good start, I'll give you a lead, crazedmaniac aka "Zippy" Chris had a lot of pictures on the server with some quite interesting descriptions if you could follow his train of thought, plus a good portion of he previous travels on that wall.  But since the site's recent overhaul I haven't had any luck finding them again.

Regarding CC, some of the pages cannot be found on the site search, but try google searching a keyword (squire creek wall, for example) followed by "site:cascadeclimbers.com" (no spaces, and without the quotes)

a new trip report search tool has been added at cascade climbers. I ran a quick search on "squire" and got 4 pages of hits. Here's the TR search tool: http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/tripreport
