Boulderers on boulder with Mine Wall in background...


North facing wall a few miles from No Name Crag. Minimal development so far, but some potential. Quite a bit of good bouldering in the area.

Getting There 

Hwy 2 to FS 62. After about 1/2 mile, park on L at a decomissioned logging road with large rocks blocking vehicle access. Hike road 20-30 minutes to hairpin turn with good valley views and a view of the crag to the R. Trail leaves hairpin at some nice boulders, then forks like crazy through a boulderfield. To reach crag, stay higher and further L than you would expect, then loop down and across to the base. Cliff is a 4 minute walk from the hairpin if you can find the way.

Climbing Season

For the Skykomish Valley area.

This place and nearby walls have tons of potential for many unique routes. Should be nice and cool in the summer, making it a nice complement to nearby Index. And with its easy access, it could become quite popular.
