East-facing sandstone cliffs above the Elwha river (note that this means the cliffs are on the west-side of the river!). Fun climbing with a variety of styles from blocky roofed jug hauls to thin and technical slabs to wild dynamic climbing.

Getting There 

Cross the Elwha river bridge on hwy 112 then look for the parking along the left side of the highway approx. 1/4 mile after the bridge. Drive past the parking then turn in to the small lot to angle park. Then hike the Adventure Route to the power line road, head downhill (left) on the power line road until you see an access road on the right with a sign that says "No motorized vehicles" or something of that sort.

Rock Climbing Photo: Finishing the crux boulder problem

Jason aka Proon aka Reciprocity 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  Washington : Olympics & Pacific Coast : ... : The Elwhall
Tricky and pumpy climbing up to a large block followed by an intense boulder problem involving a small left crimp and slopey gastons and side pulls all on steeply over hanging rock. The difficulty eases after grabbing a pistol-grip hold and throwing a heel up by your hands but steepens and remains pumpy through the finish. So good! The original line increased in grade from around .12a and changed significantly since the original first ascent after many large holds broke off....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington

How far after the bridge on 112 is the pull off for the Adventure Route? More beta to find the crag would be helpful, coming from outta town.
