Cascade Alpine Rock

Faces and ridges? Climbers unfa­mil­iar with the Wash­ing­ton Cas­cades often think of it as a range bristling with snow-capped, glaciat­ed peaks, a place for moun­tain climb­ing, not for rock climb­ing. In fact the range is home to immense rock walls, ele­gant rock ridges, and com­plex faces com­posed of sol­id gran­ite that offer an abun­dance of world class alpine rock routes. Some require glac­i­er trav­el and involve long approach­es in glo­ri­ous wilder­ness set­tings. Oth­ers are set high in the North Cas­cades, a mere hour’s walk from the trailhead. 

Below is a sam­pling of what this range has to offer. Whether you are a begin­ner or advanced climber, the Cas­cades will take you where you want to go!

These climbs are gen­er­al­ly done on a cus­tom basis.
