This is a series of crags on Highway 542, the bulk of which are between milepost 37 and milepost 46, but some are at the end of the highway at the Mt. Baker Ski Area and in the Mt. Baker Backcountry. The crags are mixed in their usage. There are some ice climbs, some rock climbs and some mixed routes in the area.
