Do you like sustained 100 foot routes that are classic start to finish? This is the place for you! Sun doesn't hit this wall until 4pm in late spring, haven't climbed here in the summer yet. Temps there are perfect in 80 degree weather!

Getting There 

Take Wild Cat rode off of High Way 12, roughly 30 minutes outside of Naches. It's two roads past a small store, there's a doll thingy of a guy with a bear chasing him up a tree right out from of the store. Once on Wild Cat road, follow it past a cabin resort, pavements ends here. Take every left for following that. About 2 miles up this road you will drive between two crazy walls, one is honey combed and the other one has long hexongal like rock formations, park 100 yards past these. Walk back to those walls and cut right just before reaching them, follow the trail 10 minutes down this to the wall.

Albeit some dirt, dust, cobwebs and natural rockfall this is the best continuous quality wall at Tieton; unless there's some secret hidden wall I didn't find.

One 70M rope works great at this crag, as to not have to worry about the ends barely reaching...Especially for the routes Rhythm and Sorrow and Colonade - through Firestone (left to right) and Keel Hauled.

I wanted to report the washout of Wildcat Rd./NFS-1306. This is a primary access into a number of Tieton River Rocks areas including "The Caldera", "The Honeycomb Buttress", and "Wild Cat Wall".

My friend and I were headed to The Caldera for bouldering and found a cement blockade in the middle of the road at between .8 and 1.2 miles up the road (guess from google maps). Upon returning to Naches and visiting with the ranger at the NFS station, we were shown the pictures of the washout. It pretty much took the whole road at one of the creek pipe bypasses (aka not vehicle passable at all).

The ranger told us there is no money in the budget to fix the road this year or next year. So we are looking at maybe June/July 2016 for reopening of the road.

Just an FYI. Expect to require hiking your gear into the crag.


PS I'm going to post this on the crag pages as well as a heads up for people.
