A solid 40 minute hike uphill from the Snow Creek lot ends at the Pearly Gates, a crag with a couple dozen crack and slab routes from one to two pitches. The rock is an amazingly sticky fine-grained granite, unlike most other granite in the Icicle. The routes range from 5.8 to 5.12, and are generally super fun. Some routes are north facing, so this can be a good option when the rest of the canyon is too hot.
Park at the Snow Creek lot (FS pass required), cross the bridge and take a climbers trail to the right after the aquaduct.

A great 2 pitch line that can be done in one if you have a 60m.P1- Tricky start (for a shorter person) leads to an excellent hand and fist crack (easier). Finishes at a two-bolt belay anchor. 5.8P2- Climb a slabby dihedral protected by three bolts (you can add gear too). This is the crux of the route. Some fun stemming. (A 5.9+ goes right.) Then traverse left on a much easier hand crack. Bolted anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in WA
