The rugged, volcanic geology of the Yakima Valley make it one of Washington State's best rock climbing and mountaineering destinations. Many of the Valley's mountaineering spots are praised by the climbing community for their solid rock quality and the variety of routes. A short drive from Downtown Yakima and you're able to rope up a quick pitch, and be steps away from terrain that will challenge even the most experienced climbers. And with the Yakima Valley's sweeping landscapes, nearly every climb ends in a breath-taking view.
Known among the climbing community for its solid rock quality and variety of routes, the Tieton River Valley at the entrance to White Pass is one of the Valley's best kept secrets.Learn More
