Washington rock climbing is remarkably diverse. There are 5.14s at Little
Si, V11s at Gold Bar, and classic moderates at Leavenworth. There's granite at Index, gneiss at Newhalem, andesite
in the Tieton, and limestone in the Northeast. You can wrestle a ten-foot boulder at Minnehaha and pad up a 20-pitch
slab at Darrington. You can start a climbing day enveloped in the lush heart of a rain forest and end it basking
in the open vista of a sagebrush desert.

it. We need to work together to make sure we can keep on climbing, both now and in the future. The WCC's goal is
