Climb stuff at Keechelus Ridge
The overall plan: To climb all over Keechelus Ridge near Snoqualmie Pass. Temperatures should have a high of 69 degrees or so, therefore it should be quite pleasant. Top rope or lead. Beginners, intermediate, advanced, all are welcome whether you've been outdoors before or not. Getting there https://goo.gl/maps/suTEcE2pbcG2 Take exit 54 off i-90, go north (cross i-90) toward the Gold Creek sno park area and take the next available right. This is Road 4832 which will lead you east, parallel to i-90. Take this road for 4 miles. It will turn to gravel and go uphill. Take the prominent left fork--this is your second left turn. Go another 3.25 miles until you see a small spur road to your left followed immediately by a small parking area to your right. Park in the parking area, cross the road and hike up the spur road for about 15 minutes until you get to a wide flat area with a great view. There is a small trail leading into the forest: hike this trail for another 10 minutes until the scenery becomes rocky--keep following the rocks downhill for a minute, then through the forest for a few more minutes until you come to the top of West Wall. We'll meet in the parking spot and then head up. The Climbing West Wall 2x5.6, 2x5.7, 5.8, 5.9, 5.10a Lizard Ledge 2x5.7, 2x5.8, 5.10c, 2x5.11a East Wall 5.3, 2x5.8, 3x5.9 (one off them with 17 bolts!?!), 5.10b, 4x5.10c, 5.10d, 5.11b, 5.11c, 5.11d Communications I'll email all the rsvp-ers nearer the date and we can trade numbers to ensure late arrivals or lostee's (it happens) can locate us or catch up or get directions (if I don't reply immediately give it a little while, I might be climbing, belaying someone, or out of breath from hiking). Basically when you see the maroon CR-V with the 'LA County Coroner' sticker you're in the right place. At the crags look for the 'Union Jack' painted climbing helmet or ask any groups if they are with the MeetUp. Stuff to Bring Essentials: Harness, shoes, water, sunblock, lunch. Helmets are recommended. Would be handy if you have them: Rope, quickdrawers, ATC/grigri, personal anchor, chalk, anchors, slings, and such.
