  This site has information about the issues we're working on; information on Washington climbing areas; background on the WCC; information on how you can support us, and other resources for climbers. We hope you'll join us and help!

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.

Nearly everywhere we climb, though, we're guests on someone's land. Even if it's public land, we don't control 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 to keep Washington climbing vibrant by working with land managers and property owners on climbing issues, educating climbers about legal, environmental and resource concerns, and promoting climber stewardship of our cliffs and boulders.
