Description 

The Carnival Boulders are a nice area just up-canyon from the 8 Mile campground. There are some great warmups and easy problems as well as a couple of fun moderates and at least one new-school highball (Big Happy or Legs Go Snappy
).

South-facing, plenty of sun, and the usual short & steep approach.

Getting There 

Park at 7.4 miles up the canyon next to a large rock outcropping on the side of the road. Walk straight up the steep hillside for 100m to reach the main area.

Awesomely slabby.Start in the middle of the face on good holds and style your way through some small crimps and footholds before a somewhat off-balance move to a big edge. Top out straight above.It's probably best to do this when it's dry; I got a bit sketched out after grabbing the good edge and finding it to be completely soaked with water along with the slopers on the topout. After much hesitation and one near slip I managed to top it out, but it was way more exciting than I had a...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

Additional info on the approach:

the "large rock outcropping" noted in the description of this area is also the top of Eight Mile Rock. The trail up to the boulders is about 200 ft east (back towards town) of Eight Mile Rock on the north side of the road. Look for what seems like a steep dusty wash up the side of the slope.
