Access Issue: Working Timberland Details
April 19, 2017: Weekday access to the Gold Bar boulders has now reopened following a temporary closure to ensure public safety during harvest activities associated with the Dyno timber sale. In partnership with Access Fund and Washington Climbers Coalition, DNR preserved access to much of the road network hikers and climbers use to access the Gold Bar boulders.

Access Issue: The land owners are fine with climbers who are respectful Details
Do not park directly across from mile marker 33 as stated in the guidebook. Just west of the mile marker is a better parking spot which lends to afternoon shade and only adds a few dozen meters of approach. There are private property signs but the land owners in the area expressed concern only with illegal activity and messes; pack out what you pack in and try to leave no trace.
Description [Suggest Change]
Mantel up into the scoop. Traverse right and climb slab to the top. Crux is high unless your slab tech is really dialed.
Location [Suggest Change]
On the downstream side of the main beach boulder, look for the nice scoop.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Pads and spotter
