Climb Stuff at Far Side (Exit 38)

  • Jul 27, 2014 · 8:30 AM

The Plan: A jaunt back to the Far Side, Exit 38 to try some toprope and some lead climbing on the sport routes at Interstate Park (5.6 to 5:10 is the general range we're looking at), maybe explore some of the other areas should we fancy it and maybe enjoy some jumping off the bridge into the river afterwards to cool down.

All are welcome whether you've been outdoors before or not, beginner, intermediate, advanced, there's something for everyone.

Location: http://goo.gl/maps/PYWlB
You’ll need a Discover Pass for this location.

We'll hang around to meet up with people at 8:30am and then begin hiking in. Look for the champagne Toyota wagon with the 'LA County Coroner' sticker at the parking lot, at the crag look for the Union Jack painted climbing helmet and cammo trousers or just ask any groups you encounter if they are with the MeetUp

Stuff to Bring
Essentials: Harness, shoes, water, sunblock, lunch.
Would be handy if you have them: Rope, helmet, quickdrawers, ATC/grigri, personal anchor, cams, chalk, anchors, slings and such.
Jumping off the bridge: A towel. Maybe a change of clothes.

    Hardest route: the bridge!

      What can I say, I am afraid of jumping off bridges, heights, zombies, and UFOs, amongst other things.

      July 28, 2014

    • Christen

      Sounds like the next meetup should be cliff jumping at Sun Lakes.

    Sorry to have missed it. I have to first get a Parks parking pass. Will get that this week. I let the organizer know that I would try for the next trip. Glad you all had fun.

    Hey, everyone... Anyone wants to carpool from the Seattle area?

      (ha! sorry, should probably have been more specific - a rope is pretty basic ;-) ... but I currently just have personal gear and a few shareable items like a belay device, chalk, helmet, PAS, tape ...)

      Hi Long, I didn't see your comment until early this morning, sorry!

    I have a rack, a rope, a book, a dog and a car if anyone's interested in carpooling from beacon hill. Coming back from a shoulder explosion so mid .10 will be about my top.

    July 22, 2014

    • Mike

      Right on, well I'll see you there.

      July 26, 2014

    • Holly

      Thanks for letting us barrow your rope and stuff!

      July 27, 2014

  • Holly

    It was great meeting all of you! I wish I could have stayed longer! Maybe next time!

    July 27, 2014

    • Holly

      P.s. If anyone wants to climb at stone gardens like on a week day morning, I'm down!

    Thanks for an amazing day on the rock. Send me a message if anyone heads up that way again (and/or just wants to go for a hike).

  • Stephen Y.

    I am willing to take a few in my car but I am on the eastside. Will be at the Eastgate P&R at 8 am if anyone wants a ride.

    July 22, 2014

    • Sergey A.

      hey dude, I'm feeling a little under the weather, so I'll be bailing on this trip. Just thought I'd send you a heads up. hope it's awesome!

      July 27, 2014

    • Stephen Y.

      Alrighty - see you next time then. Get better soon.

    I am driving from Lynnwood. I can drive people out there, but leaving around 2pm to attend the Loverboy concert at Snoqualmie/ therefore can not drive you back in the afternoon. Let me know if you need a one way ride. Can stop at MillCreek/CanyonPark park and ride right off of 405 to pick you up. [masked]. Can take 3 others in white Honda CRV. :)

    I'm driving from West Seattle, any room available to car pool?

    July 25, 2014

  • Dennis K.

    I'll be coming from the Capitol Hill area if anyone needs a ride. I have the book, a rope, draws, basic trad rack, etc. too.

    July 25, 2014

    • Emily L.

      Hey Dennis, I'm leaving from the Cap Hill area also with a friend. Let's consolidate? I don't mind driving!

      July 25, 2014

    • Dennis K.

      Emily - sounds good! I should mention I have a small well behaved dog (only 15 lbs) I was going to bring with me so I don't mind driving either. I also have a cargo box for gear.

      July 25, 2014

  • Steph

    I'm coming but I think I am going to meet up with the group a bit later than 8:30.

    July 25, 2014

  • Christen

    I am coming up from Olympia and willing to drive if anyone is interested.

    July 25, 2014

  • Dan C.

    It seems like a lot of people need rides. I have a pilot that can fit 4 and gear. If that helps anyone let me know. I am east of the city in newcastle.

    July 22, 2014

    • Alec M.

      Hey Dan, I live near Newcastle. Mind if I catch a ride with you? I've got the guidebook!

      July 24, 2014

    • Dan C.

      Alec thats fine I can ride you just email me your address and phone number. I can't wait to see this infamous guide book.

      July 24, 2014

  • Amy

    Hi Guys, this weekend unfortunately I won't be able to make it :( So I can't carpool this weekend, but next time I can go I'm definitely willing to give rides!

    July 23, 2014

  • Holly

    I would carpool, but I have to be home by about 1pm so that ican get ready for work at 3pm. Would that work for anyone?

    July 22, 2014

  • Amy

    Hey guys! I have a car and can take at least 3 other people with me from Seattle. 4 if someone small is willing to squeeze in the middle seat. Let me just confirm that I'll def be able to go and I'll message everyone back! I live in QA and there are usually plenty of spots around to leave cars for the day.

    July 22, 2014

    • Kaiwen

      Hi Amy, if you are definitely able to go, I'd also be interested in getting a ride and splitting gas. Cheers!

      July 22, 2014

  • Dan C.

    Jusy and FYI I am going to try to climb at exit.38 tomorrow. If anyone wants to join feel free. I have no idea where im going and the guide book seems to be sold out everywhere in the seattle area. Mountain project isnt very clear either. SO if someone knowledgeable about the area wants to tag along that would be great. If not ill see you guys/gals sunday.

    July 21, 2014

    • Dan C.

      Andrea thanks for the offer on the book. Looks like im going to get rained out today. Ill have to check the book out this weekend.

      July 22, 2014

    • Andrea Z.

    If it's SUPER hot on a Sunday I may forego climbing to float the river with some friends, but maybe I can do both!

    July 22, 2014

  • Will

    Bruce, you said Saturday! Bah! :/

    July 21, 2014

    • Bruce M.

      I might need to do a VW Seattle run Saturday. If the repair I made to my shoes doesn't hold tonight I'll be wanting my spares from there. Besides, it'll be fun to see what new weird stuff they've set since last we were there.

      July 22, 2014

  • Steph

    carpool?

    July 21, 2014

  • Eric T.

    I'm going to try and make it. The Cascade Country Club's annual party is the Saturday the 26th in Leavenworth at the forestland parking lot, mp 5.7 up the icicle. All are welcome, it's themed...ask for more info if you like...
