The Washington Climbers Coalition worked with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, along with partner groups from the climbing community to install a toilet at the climbing area in Frenchman Coulee, also known to climbers as simply "Vantage." This magic moment is twenty years in the making.

We celebrated this toilet installation, and we also undertook a trail project addressing erosion and foot traffice impact on the main trail accessing the "Sunshine Wall," in May 2014.

Friends from partner groups The Mountaineers, the Access Fund, the American Alpine Club, the Spokane Mountaineers, and Climbers for Christ joined us in this endeavor.
