A surprisingly dry crag for Bellingham, Governor Listor Cliff is a great 1 pitch, slightly overhanging, wall of sandstone. A majority of the sport climbs are in the 5.8 to 5.9 range, and there are some highball bouldering opportunities as well. The level of moderate routes makes this place a great spot for learning how to lead climb. Setting up a top rope from the top of the cliff is difficult and not recommended, so lead climbing is best. Governor Listor Cliff can be a bit chossy, but overall is a surprisingly pleasant place to climb, hidden off of Chuckanut Drive. The new hardware was placed around 2011.
Approach: The trail leading up to the crag is short, no more than 400 meters at most. It's a steep scramble, and though you will have to cross over a couple fallen trees, the trail is fairly well marked. A blue rope will help you scramble the last steep section.
Getting There: the accessibility is fairly good. From Bellingham, head south on Chuckanut Drive. Right past mile marker 12, around a turn, is a large parking lot on the right. Park here, for free. Across Chuckanut Drive, look for the large boulder that has a plaque in memorium of Governor Listor. Follow the trail about half a mile until you reach the cliff.
