Fun trad and sport cragging just east of February Buttress. Being the closest area to town and proximity to the road, this is a great place for late evening and sunset climbing.

Getting There 

On highway 2, look for the trail just east of milepost 99. Stay left on trail. Head to the big looming overhang below february buttress. Look for bolts near the big black (often wet) streak below the overhang.

Climbing Season

For the Tumwater Canyon area.

A great crack climb. Worth seeking out. I did the left hand start because it looked more interesting to layback up the flake. There is a thin right ward traverse into another good crack and some wandering to find the top. The only anchor is way back and to the notch for rapping, or you can lower off it and belay your 2nd up while sitting up the hill watching them climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
