Newhalem remains a little known gem within the abundance of Washington crags. Still in it's infancy, the surrounding area holds huge potential for further development. The rock is a gneiss (metamorphosed granitic rock) that is both solid and beautiful, offering quality aesthetic lines of 5.9 through 5.13 in difficulty.
The town of Newhalem is located on Highway 20, just west of the Diablo dam. Crags are distributed through the surrounding area of the town proper.

Follow a right-facing corner system with interesting moves to the anchors of Zloi and continue upwards to a ledge. Leave the ledge with difficulty and continue up the overhanging face with long, cool pulls between good holds. Varied and fun!...[more] Browse More Classics in WA
