The Prime Cut island is directly west from Roadside rock (also called "Highway rock" in Rock Climbs of Central Washington, though Prime Cut is not in this book). The main attraction is the obvious thick flake that splits the wall, but other climbs exist.

Getting There 

Approach by canoe or boat. There is a spot to beach a canoe directly below the Prime Cut route.

A tricky face start (crux) to a thin smooth quartz-lined tips crack to the left of Prime Cut. Allegedly goes at 11a. The route is currently dirty and in need of gardening. It probably hasn't been climbed more than a few times, but would be a worthy clean-up project....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
