Named after the outcrop at the top of the cliff, this is the first open cliff area a little ways up North Canyon, a 15-20 minute hike in from the parking area. The rock is cleaner and more solid than usual here and has a “boilerplate” look, but also has bands of broken brittle rock. A prominent pine tree is at the top of the cliff. A short 3rd class scramble to the North leads to the top.

Getting There 

First open cliff on the left a couple of minutes walk past the turn off to Windy Point.

FIRST THOUGHT, BEST THOUGHT 5.8 *** 90' F (10b) This was the first route bolted at Whistler Canyon. A bouldery start leads to excellent, varied and sustained climbing punctuated with good rests. Climb the middle of the face directly below and left of the pine tree. 2 chain anchors on top (beside the large pine). You may want to take a large (#3) cam to place between the 2nd and 3rd bolts, but it's not essential....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
