Several great crags lie just below the Upper Town Wall and Cheeks: Little Elvis, Shady Lane, Pressure Drop Wall, The Rabbit, and several others. Most are relatively shady, but offer nice trad leads or easy-to-set-up topropes.

Getting There 

The trail to the Upper Wall starts at the NE end of the Country, just beyond the posted bulletin board, and winds up steep switchbacks to the upper wall. Little Elvis and Shady Lane are on turn-offs from this trail.

A beautiful finger/off fingers crack followed by a less beautiful, but still fun crack system. Start on the ledge below the obvious splitter. Reach up and place a piece to protect yourself and your belayer before starting. The crux comes in the middle part of the finger crack between the small pods and it protects very well.The second half of the route isn't quite as classic as the first half, but is still good climbing and will only improve as it cleans up with more traffic.After gaining the...[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
