This is the last trailside crag on BLM land before crossing the fence (green gate) into Forest Service land (located just over a mile and a half up on trail #100 from the parking lot). The farthest end of the canyon has 8 routes established on the slabby east-facing cliffs with the roof at the top. Overall, a small but unique spot that almost feels like the Gunks (carriageway at the Trapps), with rock that appears to be granite or granodiorite.

Getting There 

Hike up trail #100 for a mile and a half (45 minute hike) to where the cliff comes right down to the trail.

Climbing Season

BRIGHT PHOEBUS - 5.10a *** 80' F (9b)Begin between the two close together pines and climb directly up to the chain anchors on the slab above the roof. This is a delightful slab/face climb with interesting moves, consistent challenges and sustained 5.8 to 5.9 climbing except for the short crux section just below the upper overhangs. Follow the bolts through the weakness right of the large roof....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
