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

Gift of the Magi 5.7 ** 65' F(6b)Climbs the slab at the left end of the face to the crux finish and 2 ring anchors below the roof. Very good slab climbing (if a bit contrived to avoid taking an easy way to the right - especially at the start and finish)....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
