Description 

Good solid granite cracks and slab, this place really deserves to be more popular than it is. Currently, the routes are somewhat dirty and mossy, and definitely need some TLC. If people climbed here more often, this would be some of the best trad climbing in the area. There is also plenty of room for development, both trad and sport.

Some of the bolted slab routes have studs that are missing hangers.

If you climb here, I recommend bringing a large brush, especially for the slab routes.

WARNING: There are rattlesnakes in this area.


Getting There 

30 miles from downtown Spokane. These directions assume you are coming from the city.

  • Head out Northwest Blvd. It turns into 9-Mile Road, and eventually Corkscrew Highway. All are still the same road (Hwy 291).
  • Past the town of Tum Tum, you will go through a switchback up and to the north, then around a bend back south towards Long Lake.
  • Soon, you will pass some amazing looking granite cliffs with houses and mobile homes in front of them on your right. These, unfortunately, are not your destination.
  • Continue until you see the dark colored slabs on the right that come very close to the road. There will be a parking lot, and a boulder with a chainlink fence around it (the pictographs). Park here (Discovery Pass Required).

There are trails here that go up to the smaller and higher domes, or head east back down the road to a clearing for the Apron and the Banana Split Dome.
