The Yakima Climbing Scene is a group for Yakima area rock climbers. Our goal is to provide local climbers of all levels the opportunity to connect with others who share their passion.
Who We Are
The United States Forest Service needs your help!
Ventenata Dubia (North Africa grass) was identified at and around Lava Point last fall. So far, this is the only documented site on the entire 4.2 million acres of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Ventenata is a highly invasive annual grass (think – the next cheat grass!) https://www.nwcb.wa.gov/weeds/ventenata
You can help control the spread by staying on established trails and cleaning your shoe & equipment when you leave Lava Point or any area infested with noxious weeds!
Smash and grabs are back!
Good climbing weather is back, and so are everyone’s favorite a-holes.
This photo is from last week at Royal Columns highway pullout.
REMINDER: When climbing at Royal Columns park in the lot NOT on the highway. And do not leave any valuables in your car.
New Anchors Are Here
Thanks to a grant from Washington Anchor Replacement Project and local volunteers, new hardware is being installed at the top of some of Royal Columns most popular climbs. Anchors will continue to be replaced throughout the spring.
Please use your own gear for toproping!
