Refrigerator Wall is located to the southwest of Mt. Erie. From the intersection of State Route 20 and Rosario Road (where Pass Lake is), head west for 0.8 miles on Rosario Road. You will see a "Y" in the road. Veer left onto Rosario Beach Road.

There is a wall that can be rappelled on the left hand side as you are going down the hill. Pickup a faint trail that gets better as you get higher. A five minute approach gets you to the top of the rappel cliff. Anchor using the tree. A 60m rope will just reach the bottom. Don't tie stopper knots.

If you keep driving down the hill, make the first left, which is still Rosario Beach Road, and drive another 0.2 miles. You will see Refrigerator Wall on your left as well as some parking. Park outside the gates otherwise you will need a Discover Pass.

This wall was discovered by Tim Nelson and Stuart Ford and developed by Leif Johnson and Andrew Sell. There are about six established sport routes ranging from .10c - .13b. The only way this wall could be top-roped would be after the leader clips top anchors and lowers. The wall is fairly overhanging. Of course, you can boulder as much of the wall as you want.

It seems Refrigerator Wall lies within the boundaries of Deception Pass State Park, so great care of the area must be taken. There is also a residential area very close. Don't be loud, pickup trash, and park off the road.

A good wall for afterwork sessions. Further reading and information can be found on pages 128-129 of Rock Climbing Washington.

The majority of the routes have now been rebolted (see descriptions), and are ready for some serious grip-clinging action. The grades above are guesses, please comment/list grades so that we can get a good consensus. The routes could also use more traffic to clean them up a little. Have fun!
