I'm new to the pnw and was wondering where the most dog friendly crags where? Not interested in the good/bad of dogs at crags, but where are they allowed and/or common.

Thanks

Broughton Bluff constantly has dog's there, probably because there is a dog park right next to it. Careful though the poison oak there can get very thick in spots and most of the dogs I've met are too dumb to keep there noses out of it.

There is no such thing as a dog friendly crag because there is always some ass wipe that won't control his dog. Or the owner can't possibly understand how his precious dog could be aggressive. "Don't worry he doesn't bite". Yeah, my ass. mrbiscoop

I've brought my (very calm, well-socialized) dog to exit 38 and exit 32, as well as to Leavenworth with nothing but positive responses from other climbers. As long as you keep him tied up and away from people belaying, I can't imagine you would have any problems at most crags around here. (although the responses on here so far would suggest otherwise!)

Take your dog anywhere you want. But, remember, your actions will affect the attitudes of others toward all dog owners. Hopefully, you can make a positive impact.

My dogs were only allowed to non busy and more remote areas. As soon as we arrived at the area they got tied up far from any routes and trails. No barking was allowed either.

I really dont think dogs belong at the crags. They are too much of a nuisance and a distraction for belayers. You need to leave him at home, what fun is it being tied to a tree all day anyway?

K lets get a dog at the crags debate going now!

i guess you have not met black nasty at a crag, unleashed...
you probably would not even notice that he was there. belaying or not.



please step off the high horse people. dave did not ask the question of what is politically correct at all crags on the earth. he is just trying to get beta to his new neighborhood.

Totally agree. My dog Ringo has more experience at crags and better behavior than 90% of climbers I meet. And he's never been tied to a tree. Instead he's spreadin love among the people and makin them smile. Down off the Shetland pony RMT, seriously.

if a dog is too much of a distraction for someone belaying. then they better stick to climbing indoors, where the distractions are minimal!
this way they can learn some better belay skills... jus sayin..

No shit! Not every dog, owner, and crag is the same.
