Description 

Directly south of the parking area The Pit is dry early in the year, long before the main wall and mushroom rock.
Wear shoes for the approach as you have to walk across a lot of loose basalt and can easily stub a toe or roll an ankle in less desirable footwear.

Beware of loose rock! Even some of the small (6-8ft) pillars are perched on unsolid bases and will move and potentially fall.

Getting There 

Follow the trail south west from the parking lot, keep an eye out for a left (west) branching trail up out of the draw.

Pit Lizard 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  WA : Northeast Corner & Spokane : ... : The Pit
Certainly one of the best 11a's in the area. It's a juggy climb with no really hard moves. The pump will get you though....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
