D-Ton Boulders Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Approximate location.
Situated on FSR 23, just off the Mountain Loop Highway, this compact area has, by comparison to most west side bouldering areas, a zero approach! To date, there are around 30 established problems and several projects. Grades range from V0s to V8s, the projects will be considerably harder.
Directions: (About 1hr 45 min from Seattle) From Seattle: Head north on I-5. Take Exit 208, route 530 east toward Darrington, via Arlington. From the four-way stop at the Shell gas station in Darrington, turn Right onto Mountain Loop Highway (South). Follow this for approximately 9 miles. Just past the White Chuck Boat Launch and where the pavement ends, turn left (east) onto FSR 23. Follow this for 4.3 miles to a pullout on the left side of the road and park here. Walk up the road (east) for approximately 60 meters and look for an obvious cairn on the right side of the road (south side). Take this trail and the first boulder (The Welcome Boulder) is approximately 100 meters from the road.

Start low in cave on the south side of the therapy boulder. SDS matching on sloping ledge down low on right side beneath the old dead tree and stump. Move left using hidden holds and crimps. Move further out left using cool movement and a gaston up better holds. Great problem. Named after the group effort put into cleaning the boulder away from work and the hustle and bustle of life.

Looks really cool - thanks for sharing the goodies! Friendly suggestion: Any interest in calling this place the White Chuck Boulders in honor of the nearby river and peak (D-ton is >10 miles away)?

Curtveld - the name change sounds good to me. If the main developers here are OK with it, I'll make the change.
