Description 

The west face currently has about 15 climbs on it. Almost all of them are 2 pitches in length and most of the climbs are bolted. Once you reach the top or ridge of big rock, work your way left (north) all the way to the very north end. There is a 2 bolt rappel anchor here. A 60 meter rope is recommended for the double rope rappel (a 50 meter could work in a pinch but would require some down climbing near the bottom).

Getting There 

Hike up the trail from Stevens Creek Trailhead. The first large rock is Big Rock. The west face is to the left.

Featured Route For West Face

Southwest Chimney 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  WA : Northeast Corner & Spokane : ... : West Face
This route can probably be done in one pitch, but there would be too much rope drag. The first pitch is a low grade friction slap to some chains, then its up into a wide off width chimney with 3 bolts. The chains are at the top of the chimney, or you can scramble up a bit further to another set of chains that can be rapeled off....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
