I'm separating this out to make an easy distinction between the bouldering and the alpine/trad in Icicle Creek.

Some of the best bouldering in the state can be found up in Icicle. The Forestland Boulders, Mad Meadows, and plenty of outlying boulders provide a wealth of terrain to test one's self.

Getting There 

Take a left at the West end of town, and follow the road up Icicle Creek.

The Central Washington Bouldering guide gives mileage to the various areas from this intersection, so unless otherwise noted that's where the distances are measured from.

The Coffee Cup V9 7C  Washington : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : Forestland Boulders
Pure, powerful, beautiful, The Coffee Cup is an elegant hard problem. Begin on the lowest rail, and work through just three powerful moves on awesome sloping edges. Finish on jugs! I haven't climbed enough at this level to be sure of the grade, and I think that short power problems can be the hardest to grade anyway. I've heard v10 from a number of sources, and v9 from others. Probably it depends on your morphology....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
