Steeple Rock - Wings

5.8, 3 pitches

https://www.summitpost.org/steeple-rock/394209 Doesn’t really sound that neat, only a 200 ft cliff? Not great rock quality either? Apparently it is sport. Maybe bring a single rack and nuts just in case? Approach The road is essentially right below the peak (200 vertical feet below and 0.1 mile away). It looks like you park a little before…

Junior's Farm

5.8+, 8 pitches

A true hidden gym, this 8 pitch sport route is well bolted (usually every 7 feet), on fun rock, has some good views, and is only a 5 minute walk from the car! Pitch ratings are our best guess after climbing the route. Gear 12 quickdraws, including 3 single alpines is all you need! Include…

Salami Slabs - Snagglepuss

5.8+, 7 pitches

Overall: 3/4 stars Approach: 3/4 stars. Pretty good! At a very slow pace, it took us 50 mins including wrong turn, and on the way down we found the better trail that does NOT go through the rocky gully with the devil’s club! Climbing: 3/4 stars. Slab, slab, and more slab. But kinda fun! Basically…

The road is not in great shape, but…

Bacon Peak - From East

Class 2

Steph’s description: http://www.stephabegg.com/home/tripreports/washington/northcascades/bacon A lovely snowy high camp, no trailhead!

Icy Peak - Icy Peak via Ruth Mountain

Class 4

This is a fun/great peak for two reasons or more. One is the moderate climbing required to summit. Two is that this is still a North Cascade Peak not climbed by hordes of people giving you some remoteness without bushwhacking or spending days getting to the peak.  Some reports are from climbers doing the Ruth…

Nooksack Tower - Beckey-Schmidtke

5.4, 6 pitches

A glacier approach leads to a 50+ degree, 800-foot (240m) snow & ice gully, then to another 800 feet of rock climbing, ranging from class 3 to perhaps 5.4. Objective hazards include crevasses, a bergschrund, steep snow/ice, avalanches, and steep, loose rock. While a fast party can do it in a weekend, our threesome took…
