About Q'Emiln Park:

The Carlson brothers did a lot of the routes on the Post wall. Terry Gift, Jerry Thompson, Kyle Austin and Keith Wallace have also been mentioned as active persons of the past. Post Falls is the best 5.10 and below cragging area in the Inland Northwest. The granite here is less jagged and more fingertip friendly, and the protection is much more plentiful than places such as Minnehaha or Dishman. Great place to gain leading experience, since you can easily find well protected moderates. There is currently nothing over 12c here. Most routes have top rope anchors, and are easily accessible, so bring your long webbing.
Nearest town or city: Post Falls
Directions: From Downtown Spokane, get on I-90 going east and head to the Idaho State Line which is about 16 miles away. Take Exit 5, The Spokane Street/City Center Exit, and take a right and head south on Spokane Street across the bridge to Parkway Road. Take a right here, and head down about 400 yards to the Q'emiln Park entrance. This pay station is open seasonally, and you can usually get in past a closed up station in the spring and fall. If you don't wish to pay during the summer months, park here and walk in. Once in, you will see a sign for the Q'emiln Park Trail System. The crag is directly west of the sign.
