Red Mamba, Afro Blue and The Great Divide.

Sitting below the Great Polish Towers, is this fine crag. Beautiful granite riddled with about every kind of climbing imaginable. Routes feature thin crack to slab, overhanging crimpy face to off width. I'm not quite sure of the climbing history in the area, but I thought I would get the ball rolling, there is a lot of potential up in them hills.

I would be surprised (but pleased), to hear about these routes ever getting traffic, but Red Mamba and Afro Blue are both hands down 5 star routes and worth the hike.

There is a water source and a cave that will keep two dry. The rock dries out extremely fast. We were climbing a majority of the time in a slight rain.

70 meter rope required for all rappels.

Getting There 

Park at 8 Mile Rock, head up past Secret Dome, follow cairns staying on the shoulder left of the creek until you hit a overhanging slabby crag. Cross the stream when it seems appropriate and follow to "The Trudge Wall". 3 hours if you are motivated.

The other option, which is likely the best, is to spend one day at Value Village, and traverse over from Value Village. It is the clearly visible dome climbers left.

1 hour from Value Village.

At the undercling, you may feel there is no hope for gear, reach out right and place a perfect #7 BD Nut. Continue up, hopping cracks and a couple slab moves past a bolt to yet another crack. Bear huggin' and stemming will bring you to a thin slightly overhung bolt protected face, with a mantle finish. Spicy. Alternatively, you could join Afro Blue by traversing right at the upper crack, though the actual finish is *****. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
