One of the best climbs in the Northwest. For more info consult the Cascades Rock by Blake Herrington.

It also goes free at 5.11.

A final note, you will have to rappel off of the route so be wary of dropping your ropes in the enormous pools of water that form on the ledges.

Approach time is about 2-3 hours.


Gear to 4” with multiples .75”-2.5”, 12 draws, 2-60m ropes recommended

Did this route a few weeks ago. Lots of fun, but we biffed the approach and ended up with a long rainy descent in the dark.

It's worth saying that this (along with Oso Rodeo) should be in their own section on MP as they are not on the Illusion Wall. Maybe call it "Squire Creek Walls - North Side" or something. I'm sure the area has a legit name somewhere.

We took a single rack to BD #4 and were fine. I felt comfortable enough on the 5.8 corner (P19, see photo) that I could have left the #4. It's not too sustained and a #3 fits in a little ways below. Sep 22, 2016

Thanks Nate, I made the move. Sep 22, 2016
Hello !! Bill Enger worked w/Whitelaw on the first ascent. Dan Dingle only did one pitch out of the 22!! Bill also did the FA w/Whitelaw on OSO Rodeo.
I was one of several support team members on both climbs.
Great area and GREAT routes!!

Here is a link to a NWMJ article by David Whitelaw about his experiences while putting up Slab Dabby. Great History.… Jan 30, 2017

Also here is a very thorough thread about this climb. Several trip reports and lots of photos.… Apr 18, 2017
Medosch, your beta is incorrect. I climbed all of the pitches, the first half of the climb multiple times. I bolted on lead all of the 12th pitch and part of the 13th. Bolts were later added to the 12th so a leader wouldn't be mortally wounded, especially if popping off the mantle far above the first bolt. It was a great route and time with fellow adventurists Whitelaw and Enger. Sep 6, 2017
