Weekend Rock Washington
Trad and Sport Routes From 5.0 to 5.10aBook - 2005 | 1st ed.
This guide is for climbers with busy lives who want to make the most of their time on the rock. Trips can be completed in a day or two: most approaches are short, drive time from urban centres is noted, and estimated climbing times range from a few minutes to a full day for these routes rated 5.0 to 5.10a. But - more important - these routes have been selected for quality of experience, rated on a three-star system. There is something here for everyone: sandstone pinnacles, alpine granite, and cliffs rising above high desert terrain. There are classic routes like Midway on Castle Rock (Washington's first rock climb and a super-classic 5.6, a great multi-pitch route for intermediate leaders) and routes in two previously unpublished areas, Banks Lake and The Half Moon Crags.
