Meet at TH at 9:30 AM.

Drive East from Seattle on I-90 and as the name implies, exit at exit 38. Turn right onto SE Homestead Valley Rd. and continue on Homestead until reaching the gravel parking area where Change Creek flows underneath Homestead. Park on the North (left side) of the Homestead. The deception crags trail head begins just on the South side of Homestead and West side of Change Creek. Follow the Change Creek trail up into the woods and underneath the old rail road trestle. Just after crossing underneath the trestle you'll encounter the first crag known as Sub-Station crag.

In your leader permission request, please state the level that you are currently top roping outside and/or leading on sport. Please also state if you have a rope, quickdraws, and anchor materials. This will help me determine what area(s) we visit.
