Description 

Region along HW 2, from Monroe to Steven's Pass. The valley has great bouldering, sport, and trad climbing. Most of the rock is granite, but the rock at No Name and nearby crags is instead similar to that at Little Si in North Bend.

This rarely done gem is definitely my favorite single pitch climb on the lower wall. Runout 5.10 climbing leads to a bolt and some fun 5.11 face moves. Next is a flared hand crack that can be liebacked (hard to place gear this way), which leads to a good rest and a bolt. Step right into a spectacular corner with bolts. Stem and lieback your way to the chains. May be a little reachy, and probably easier for tall people. Lowering is not recommended due to lots of rope drag.Note: A standard ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
