Washington Pass/Methow Fires

Recommended Posts

If you're planning to do any climbing in the Washington Pass area, it'd be wise to check up on access.  HWY 20 is closed just East of Washington Pass and probably will be until we get some significant precipitation.  This likely means September or October before you can get through.  Areas that are definitely closed include Cutthroat, Silver Star, Wine Spires, Spontaneity Arete and the Gardeners.  Also affected is area North of the Twisp River drainage.  Though the Liberty Bell are is technically just outside of the closure, I'm not sure it's a great idea to head there right now with the close proximity to the fire operations and potentially placing additional stress on resources and first responders.  Same goes for Goat Wall and crags up Lost River Rd as this area is not technically closed but is subject to a Level 1 evacuation order.

This is a map of the current USFS closure area:
