Otter Falls Sport Route

Great entry level five pitch sport climb next to a waterfall!

Deep in the forests of the Cas­cades lies a slab of immac­u­late rock above Tip­sy Lake. Pop­py’s Fol­ly climbs these slabs over five pitch­es of easy rock, ide­al for your first mul­ti-pitch rock climb and for those tran­si­tion­ing from gym climb­ing to out­doors. After a four mile walk through a lush Cas­cade for­est, the rag­ing waters of the Mid­dle Fork of the Sno­qualmie Riv­er always your com­pan­ion on the walk in, you’ll arrive lake­side, rope up, and climb this enjoy­able route. 

While the climb promis­es an unfor­get­table day trip from Seat­tle, why not extend your adven­ture into a two-day escapade? Explore near­by canyoneer­ing options, immers­ing your­self in the heart of nature’s play­ground that is the Mid­dle Fork of the Sno­qualmie Riv­er. Choose to camp beneath a star­lit sky or indulge in the com­fort of a cozy bed in the charm­ing town of North Bend. Either way, this adven­ture will deliv­er the goods and take you to the next level.
