Trad near Spokane?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married near Colville, north of Spokane, in July. Any good moderate trad climbing around there? Is it best to go toward Liberty Bell or should I look for something closer? Thanks!

I am assuming by the reference to Liberty Bell that you are looking for longer alpine routes not just a day of roadside cragging. Check out Harrison Peak and Chimney Rock. Both are up in the Selkirks of northern ID and both have moderate multipitch trad routes on them.

Congratulations!

 

If you're looking for something adventurous, consider the Lion Tamer route on Lions Head peak.

It's the best alpine rock climb in the Idaho Selkirks by a long shot. Harrison Peak and Chimney are fun if you're looking for something short and less commiting.

 

Moderate trad craging of decent quality is non-existent around Spokane proper. Hard sport climbing is where Spokane shines. If you're willing to clip bolts check out Marcus or Metaline - both very close to Colville.
