A guide for climbers with busy lives who want to make the most of their time on the rock, Weekend Rock: Washington by David Whitelaw covers more than 300 trad and sport climbs from 5.0 to 5.10a. Trips can be completed in a day or two: most approaches are short, drive time from urban centers is noted, and estimated climbing times range from a few minutes to a full day. There is something here for everyone: sandstone pinnacles, alpine granite, and cliffs rising above high desert terrain - classic routes like Midway on Castle Rock and routes in two previously unpublished areas, Banks Lake and The Half Moon Crags.
