Cliffs & boulders, 1991.


These series of outcrops high above X-Rock and around to the east above the K.O.A. and north above Falls Creek Valley, have many old Beyer routes and a few new ones. The north-facing cliffs have amazing-looking crack climbs. The rock varies from soft, friable sandstone to the glacier-polished faces and cracks of Another Overlook.

Getting There 

Drive west on 32nd Street up to the trailhead and follow the switchbacks up. Whenever the trail reaches an overlook, find an inobvious path down to the base.

For the Bench, park for X-Rock, and find the path up.

Although I had more info. / photographs in the works, perhaps leaving this place as an adventure destination might be better....
