A beautiful area that has seen development in the past couple of years. The rock is still rough, and the landings are uneven, but it seems to be shaping up pretty well. There is a growing number of great climbs in this area, and potential for more.
Little Bridge Creek Wall is listed in Sheridan's guide, and has bolted routes, topropes, and The Lefty (v7). It is much closer to the road. The newer Bridge Creek area is uphill 10-15 minutes from LBC Wall.

Getting There 

Chaos is one of the furthest developed areas in the Icicle, and has a relatively long and steep approach (but still very short compared to most areas).
Park as for Little Bridge Creek Wall, which is 8.5 miles from the 76 station (junction Icicle Road and route 2) at Eight Mile Road. Park either on the left or right, well out of the way of the driveway.
Walk 30 seconds up the driveway (north side), and look left for a medium-worn trail. This trail, although faint at times, should take you to the first cluster of boulders. Essentially, you'll go uphill for about 10-15 minutes, away from the private property, which will be on your right.
The first boulder you see as you come up the hill is a right leaning v2 with slopers and poor feet.

One of the better lines at Bridge Creek, The Slot has great movement, is aesthetic, and has solid, fun holds. The rock is finer grain than that found in the first cluster of boulders. Start sitting or crouched with your hands on two horizontal crimps, and your feet on low chips trying not to touch the pad beneath you. Work your way up through the crimps, a palmy left leaning rail, and finish via the cool horn and insecure topout. It's called the Slot because a smaller boulder (that broke off, cr...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

The area described here is commonly refered to as the Chaos Boulders.
Many good problems are scattered through the large boulder field, a lot of them neo-classics. Look around and climb on what ever inspires you.
