Big slabby granite walls. Includes Roan Wall, The Illusion Wall, and Martha's Place (a huge boulder).

The Northern Section includes the ultra-long "Slab Daddy".
Waterfall Basin has the classic "Roan Wall" and a boulder with sport routes on it.

Getting There 

From Highway 530 in Darrington, turn south on Madison Ave and follow it to a T, then turn right onto Darrington Street. This becomes Squire Creek Road, which is followed to its end. The Squire Creek walls can all be approached from the Squire Creek trailhead at the end of Squire Creek Road. Different walls have turn-offs at various points along the trail with the trail to Waterfall Basin being the last turnoff before the trail heads south out of the valley to Squire Creek Pass.

Hey all -

Has anyone come across a pair of green LS Tarantulace shoes on Slab Daddy? I left them at the base of the route a few weeks back.

Please let me know if you have!
