The Darrington area is one of the best rockclimbing areas in the state of Washington. This area features large domes, buttreses and walls composed of high quality granite. The rock here offers superb friction and the exfoliating nature of the rock provides some nice flakes. Routes here vary from 1 pitch up to 11 pitches.

Exfoliation Dome is the largest climbing area here, features the classics Rainman and Jacob's Ladder. Green Giant Buttress is the second largest formation in Darringon and features the classic climb, Dreamer. The most accessible large area, and most popular formation here is Three O'clock Rock. This formation features the classic lines Silent Running and Total Soul.

In addition to these locations, the Darrington area features many smaller climbing area like the Comb Buttress, Baloney Dome, Squire Creek Wall, Four O'clock Rock, and several other less well known areas.
