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.

Getting There 

HW 2.

Rock Climbing Photo: Midnite boulder in early spring

Midnite V8 7B  WA : Index : ... : Midnite Boulder
An aesthetic boulder problem. Start on the lowest part of the rail feature (not on the improbably thin edge below it). Make a few moves left on thinning edges on the rail, then throw for the top of the boulder. The last (crux) move is deceptively hard.
