Description 

I'm separating this out to make an easy distinction between the bouldering and the alpine/trad in Icicle Creek.

Some of the best bouldering in the state can be found up in Icicle. The Forestland Boulders, Mad Meadows, and plenty of outlying boulders provide a wealth of terrain to test one's self.

Getting There 

Take a left at the West end of town, and follow the road up Icicle Creek.

The Central Washington Bouldering guide gives mileage to the various areas from this intersection, so unless otherwise noted that's where the distances are measured from.

Superb movement with a variety of ways to get through the crux. Start on good edges and feet from the ground and move up the sidepulls, slopers, and edges. The height may get to you if you're used to short problems, but the landing is great and safe overall.From mid-height either use your best layback skills to move through the sloping pinches at the top, or hike up your feet and do a large deadpoint/dyno to the rail.Top out straight above with an easy mantle....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
