Recently rebolted this is a great technical climb. The crimps - as the name implies - are damn sharp, but good footwork takes away most of the pain. Some people lunge at the end of the crux, some people find the "mono-nob" and do it static. Either way its fun....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

Yes, you should absolutely buy Inland NorthWest rock by Bland because it supports route development. However, here are the directions per Google from Pullman to Granite Point.

1. Head southwest on N Grand Ave toward W Main St 184 ft
2. Turn right at W Main St 0.6 mi
3. Turn left at Old Wawawai Rd/Wawawai-Pullman Rd
Continue to follow Wawawai-Pullman Rd 11.5 mi
4. Turn right at Wawawai Grade Rd 5.8 mi
5. Continue on Wawawai River Rd 2.0 mi

In addition to climbing and bouldering there is cliff diving and great fishing. while I was bouldering last weekend I saw a guy pull 5 good sized Bass from the reservoir

If you are feeling adventurous, there are a few routes to be found on the other side of the river/lake. In 1975 a few of us inflated a boat and made our way over there for some TRing. Caution on poison oak and porcupines.
