Description 

Stout granite routes right in the heart of Spokane Valley. Several bolted sport routes, some of which are classic, others haven't seen traffic in years.

This area is almost always shaded and wet and cold. The water tower of the top of the rock seems to seep more and more water by the day making some routes a slimy algae covered mess.

The area is some what trashed, lots of garbage and graffiti, make sure the pack out what you bring in and try to leave it looking nicer than when you got there.

Also, DO NOT leave your car here after dark, between the rowdy kids and the homeless people living in the trees back there your stuff is not safe.

I guess this is the trade off for having a climbing area so close to home.


Getting There 

From I-90 take the Millwood (Argonne Road) Exit southbound until you reach Sprague. Take a right on to Sprague and get into the far left lane. Take a left onto Park Road. Take a left on to Appleway. Follow this south east past the Appleway Service Center and take a quick right on to the dirt road immediately after it. If you hit the train tracks you have gone too far.

Follow the dirt road (less than 1/4 mile) to the cement barricades and park here. The trail to the rock heads south from the parking area.

Some burly moves off the ground get you to the first bolt, then to the crux a bolt higher. Hint: It's a lunge.Honestly, I don't remember a damn thing about the climbing after the crux. I think it was fun, but it's in the bag at that point. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
