Cragging and hiking at Ancient Lakes and Vantage
Lindsay, Yoav, and I spent much of the day wandering around the Quincy
Wildlife Recreation Area, a beautiful group of lakes and coulees east
of the Columbia River. There are two cragging areas here with bolted and trad
routes. I sport led Addicted to Crack (5.8), a loose, bolted route on
the Ancient Lakes Crag.
In the evening we drove over to Frenchman Coulee and climbed at The
Feathers. Desert Shield (5.9, sport lead then TR), The Uprising (5.8,
TR), Me Too (5.9, sport lead).
