Description 

I'm separating this out to make an easy distinction between the bouldering and the alpine/trad in Icicle Creek.

Some of the best bouldering in the state can be found up in Icicle. The Forestland Boulders, Mad Meadows, and plenty of outlying boulders provide a wealth of terrain to test one's self.


Getting There 

Take a left at the West end of town, and follow the road up Icicle Creek.

The Central Washington Bouldering guide gives mileage to the various areas from this intersection, so unless otherwise noted that's where the distances are measured from.

After much hesitation and one near slip I managed to top it out, but it was way more exciting than I had a...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
