Overhanging really stout basalt over a nice sand pit.

Early in the year the water level makes the left side of the wall hard to access, although in dry years people are climbing Main Wall in March.

Well protected sport routes, all of which have 'biners on the chains at the top to lower off of.


Getting There 

From the parking lot go past the gate to the north and down the road until you reach a trail with a sign that says "25" branching off to the left. Follow this down into the canyon and at the bottom go right (north) and follow the creek bed until you pass the mushroom shaped rock and come to a large overhanging wall with a sandy base.

Featured Route For The Main Wall
Rock Climbing Photo: Not enough endurance...whip! From the lip.

Bitten 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  WA : Northeast Corner & Spokane : ... : The Main Wall
You will find Bitten in the blocky corner where the steep pillar joins the rest of Main Wall. (3rd bolt line from the right). Start up the ugly corner of chossy looking blocks. The first half of the climb is 5.11 and below- gymnastic and fun!. After a no-hands rest, the business begins. Steep 5.12 climbing is capped by a steeper roof and a hard boulder problem. The last clip at the roof is desperate, most choose to skip it. This is a Deep Creek classic!...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
