Description 

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.

This great problem starts low on the right, and traverses up left through a series of varied holds and complicated moves, on good rock. Start seated with your hands somehow using the blocky hold, and perhaps a sloper. Work straight up to the big pinch with a great thumb-catch, and cut left, working through a horn-feature, a cool undercling, a ergonomically friendly crimp, and big flakes to the left. Top out by rocking around the corner on the high left side using the good flakes and rounded feet...[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.
