      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

"Chimney" or "Split" Rock Question???

Recommended Posts

I've heard tale of a "Chimney" or "Split" rock somewhere in Skagit county, maybe near Burlington. You have to ride a Mt Bike up logging roads to get to it. Anyone have a clue what I'm talking about? Sounds like a huge erratic in the middle of nowhere.

I've been curious about it too. I'd heard that it's all sport routes and that Dallas Kloke and Leland Windham have been involved, but I haven't been able to get any information on the place.

Lots of work to get up there on nasty logging roads (unless you have friends in high places ;) ). I was up there a few years ago and saw old bolts but it is pretty chossy as I remember.

I was up there last year on my motorcyle. The rock quality isn't bad. It offers up pockets, edges and protectable cracks. Tony B. and I put in some anchors up there about 7-8yrs ago. There's also some good bouldering around the base. There's a route that goes up the W. face that's bolted(11+/12-?). It's worth looking at. There's also a natural spring that eminates from the base as well as good tent site atop Split Rock with sunset views of the San Juans. Elevation is around 3000'. That's all I have.

Dallas Kloke.....about 9 years ago that dude took the summit shot of me and my partners on top of liberty bell. I did not know who he was until his partner told us who he was after he decended. He and his partner followed us up the route.

 

Nice guy.

And get run over by speeding hondas...hahaha.

 

That place gets little attention because it is so far from anything. Great bouldering, great potential.

We used to snowboard at the base of that thing in high school, we even built some road gaps over the logging roads up there. I never expected to see it show up on CC.com.
