Description 

Squishy Bell is covered by the trees and rock face for a majority of the day, but never cold in the summer. The rock is very similar to Gritscone in perspective to size being approximately 10m tall. Squishy Bell is a great area for beginners as it is easily top-ropable and has 4 routes ranging from 5.5-5.9.

Getting There 

To get to Squishy Bell, take the main trail up from Gritscone heading towards Easy Street. Prior to entering the overgrown trail to Easy Street, head up the trail to the left which is a large hill. Continue up this hill for approximately 10-15 minutes. There will be a trail that breaks off to the right into the forrest overlooking I-90. At this point, Squishy Bell is behind you and to the left if looking out over I-90. Carefully hike down the small trail which is covered by large rocks. This is Squishy Bell.

Good crag to take a beginner to. Easy to teach the basics here and the short height makes it easy to minimize confusion. Catches a fair amount of shade too. great views abound too. ***Take a look at the bolts. Had to tighten a few up.....***
