Description 

Region along State Highway 2, from Monroe to Stevens Pass, which includes the Skykomish River Valley. The valley has great bouldering, sport, and trad climbing. Most of the climbable rock is granite, but the rock at No Name and nearby crags is instead similar to that at Little Si in North Bend.

Getting There 

All of these areas will be accessed from state highway 2, coming either from the west, through Monroe, or from the east, from Leavenworth and over Stevens Pass.

It follows a shallow corner that switches sides a few times.Start by traversing or directly mounting a flake in the left-facing corner. You can place a good piece here(.4 camalot), then make a strenuous move to get to good finger locks in a right facing corner. A short stemming section is encountered before the final splitter crack in a left facing corner. There are two ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
