      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!

Public Meeting: Deception Crag Closure June 12

Recommended Posts

Just released


Meeting about the temporary climbing closure of Deception Crag Wall set for June 12


OLYMPIA – May 31, 2012 – The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the U.S. Forest Service invite the public to a meeting about the recent temporary climbing closure of Deception Crag Wall in North Bend.


The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. June 12, at the U.S. Forest Service in North Bend, 902 S.E. North Bend Way. State Parks, WDFW and Forest Service staff will be on hand to provide information about specific areas affected by the closure and the process that led to the decision to close climbing activities at Deception Crag Wall. For more information about the meeting, contact the Forest Service at (425) 888-8775.


The popular rock wall on the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains was closed in April to climbing activities after the discovery of a peregrine falcon nest. According to Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest wildlife biologist, Sonny Paz, the wall is expected to reopen at the end of June when the nestlings fledge or leave the nest. State Parks and the Forest Service are working closely with WDFW to protect the falcon’s nest through breeding season.


Peregrine falcons are designated as a sensitive species, which requires the Forest Service to monitor the bird and protect its breeding habitat. The birds may be seen flying around the nest at nearby Olallie State Park.


Deception Crag Wall is a U.S. Forest Service property accessed through Iron Horse Trail State Park and near Olallie State Park. The area is co-managed by State Parks and the Forest Service. For more information about the U.S. Forest Service, visit www.fs.usda.gov.
