This magic moment is twenty years in the making. We sincerely appreciate the assistance of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in bringing this to fruition and we extend our thanks to the Washington climbing community, gyms, climbing organizations, and others who helped along the way.

The Washington Climbers Coalition is hosting a celebration at Frenchman Coulee, May 10, 2014. This will include a stewardship project and a barbecue. We invite Washington climbers to take in a little desert scenery, try out the new toilet if the mood strikes them, help us with some trail work, join us for a barbecue, and explore the climbing opportunities at Frenchman Coulee and over on the other side of the mesa in Echo Basin.
