      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!

I went there a couple times about 5 years ago but I'm sorry to say I don't remember a lot about it. I do remember a 5.7 route and a 5.9 route to the right of it that starts out with an overhang - at least that's what I was told were the ratings. I know there were more than that, but we pretty much focused on the 5.7 route for lil ol' me. I also remember you can climb up the back side with the help of a cable for a hand line and rappel down two pitches to the base. And I think most of the routes are two pitches. Also, there was nobody else there one time and only two other people the other time. (Can't remember, but it could have been midweek.) Sorry I'm not much help but I have been there.

Doc !

Is that the crag that's visible above the forest as you're driving north past the Chimacum Cafe? I've noticed that for years, and always wondered if it's a climbing spot. Never took the time to stop and check it........

Nervedoc,

I climbed there about three years ago and found it to be a rather unappealing crag. That said:

There are a number of moderate routes on the wall with varried ratings. As has been stated before a number of these routes push two pitches.

Three years ago there was some access issues to the crag and we had to approach from a small lake nearby and drop down to the crag. I believe that the most simple approach crosses private property.

The guys at Olympic Mountaineering in Port Angeles can give you some decent beta on the routes and the approach that doesn't cross the private property.
