Three O'clock Rock Rock Climbing
Winter scenery from Three O Clock Rock - Clear Cre...
Several large, smooth, slabby buttresses, generally quite clean.
Drive a few miles southeast of Darrington on the (paved) Mountain Loop Highway. Take turnoff on right (#2060), just across from a campground. This gravel road is also known as the Clear Creek logging road. Drive five or six miles up this road. Stay right on the main fork at about five miles, and soon come to the Eightmile Creek Trailhead (parking on the left, sign and trail on the right).
The trail climbs steeply through second growth and soon enters tall trees. There are some impressive old cedars along the way and about forty minutes from the car the trail leaves the woods and crosses an old somewhat overgrown talus slope. The trail bumps right into the rock at the base of Silent Running (an excellent 7 pitch climb, 5.10a).

I am not sure if any bolts were replaced after the recent rockfall. I climbed Silent Running this last week. YES IN JANUARY! I only notice one that had been bent. It is located somewhere mid-route, it still looks fine, and it is still clip-able.
