On June 16-17, 2007 when we got weathered out of the Tatoosh Traverse, Mac, Andrea, Heather, Tracy and I headed to Frenchmans Coulee to rock climb. The area is near Vantage and sits in a canyon near the columbia river and the Gorge amphitheatre. The needles consist of single pitch easier climbs a real short walk from camp, and the some multipitch climbs a longer walk from camp. We only did sport rock climbing (no trad) this weekend.
