Golf Course Crags Rock Climbing
Bring your clubs.
Short walls and boulders north of the main areas, just south of Electric City.
Head north on 155 from Roadside Rock. Turn left at the big golf ball. Take the first left and drive past the golf course till you see an old dilapidated barn.

Very fun. Also very well protected (almost to the point of being overbolted, but I happily clipped every ...[more] Browse More Classics in Washington
