Description 

Horrible choss fest of the classic cascadian choss, this is actually a form of gneiss that is fairly crumbly. However, spending a season with a lack of climbing partner and a work schedule not very conducive to long alpine trips I found some boulders around the area that I consider gems. Nice granite, great fall zones, and can a very strong variety of grades.

Getting There 

Stehekin can only be reached by foot, plane, or boat. There is no access via road (automobiles). This is what makes this area remote and special, no cell reception, small population, and at the gateway to one of the oldest mountain passes (cascade pass)

Climbing Season

For the Central-East Cascades, Wenatchee, & Leavenworth area.

Weather station 2.9 miles from here

Jumbo Shrimp V2 5+  Washington : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : The Strawberry Cream Boulde...
Just to the right of Peas and Carrots, start with a high right hand in a slanting crimp and a left hand mantle. Climb up and right of the arête for a scrappy finish. A lower start could be conceivable for climbers much stronger and with less of a penchant for chocolate....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
