Early spring in the Main Canyon.

Description 

The main canyon south of the county road, divided into 3 sections - Near Wall, Main Wall and Far Wall. There have been at least a hundred different routes climbed in this canyon over the past 35 years. There is little to no evidence of this, so be prepared for an experience full of the unexpected (from rattlers to loose flakes), and a taste of the good old days...

The Main and Near Wall are divided into 2 main tiers. The lower ranging from 50 to 150' tall and the upper being up to 300' tall.

Getting There

Featured Route For Main Canyon (aka Main Wall)
Rock Climbing Photo: The Dihedral in mid January.

Dihedral 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Washington : Okanogan : ... : Main Wall
Dihedral - 5.8 *** 130' GA classic line up the first huge dihedral you come to along the Main Canyon trail. Climb the corner and face to the left to belay at the large boulder on top. Be careful of possible loose rock in the upper corner.Take the grading with a grain of salt, as it has been called everything from a 5.7 to a 5.9... so, I split the difference with the rating here....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
