So I've heard rumors there are certain crags at exit 38 & 32 that stay dry throughout the whole year. I've tried researching, but have found nothing. Anyone know the beta on these? I'm open to bouldering, sport and trad. Preferably 5.10 and lower. Thanks!

I haven't been to these areas for about 5 years now, so forgive me if some of the information is out of date.

If I remember correctly, there are only sport routes in these two areas, with only a handful of trad lines scattered around. Exit 38's Nevermind Wall has a good selection of 5.10s and can be dry during the winter months, though not after a particularly wet period.

Exit 32's World Wall is quite overhanging and tends to stay pretty dry during winter. However, the routes tend to eb concentrated in the 11 to 12 range. There are a couple worthwhile easier lines, though. Vantage (Frenchman's Coulee) and Tieton may also be dry and worth taking a look at as they are on the East side of the mountains.

Good luck! PNW winters are not easy for climbers, but I do miss these places...
