Comments: I agree with j11 - can seem confusing if you've been seeing and hearing the movements out of Prospect! Maybe this Mill Creek Park could Mill Creek Rickreall? or Mill Creek Dallas? or even Mill Creek Park Sheridan? Its in the middle of those three small towns

Comments: ok so its great Pike is getting some traffic and attention - but the twin size mattress - lets go ahead and take that away. If you don't have a bouldering pad leaving a bed mattress to get disgusting and nasty and likely draw attention from land owners, its not the answer. Every bouldering area I've ever visited where folks leave in-situ garbage pads (camp pads, mattresses) in every situation vermin tear it into a gigigllion pieces and it ends up trashing the whole site. Take your mattress ba... more >>

Comments: Another season at the Druids kicking off in full gear! Last month Snakecharmer saw a send from a stand start! V4 **** !!!!! July saw two new problems on Pistol Grip! - Pistol Whipped V3 and Tech Nine V3/4 courtesy of the visiting Umpqua Holdings and Sending Company.

Over the last winter a 5th pillar showed up!?!? Its below magical mystery pillar and looks to be high quality under some moss? Be careful if you getting to cleaning it before me :)

Comments: I apologize CritConrad. I stand corrected. Being that the two bouldering areas, and Shevlin Park are in the same general vicinity I was under the impression that more folks know the area as "Tick Ranch", being the more "historic" name going all the way back to the 90's and all. Its what came to mind for me when I first saw "power lines" posted here.

Having the 4606 vs 4609 clarification will probably help those finding power lines versus "tick ranch".

Comments: A week ago was up on Marys - 6 hangers were stolen from the lowest portions of owl slab. No hangers were taken from pillars. The situation has been rectified.

If you have any information on the Hanger Thief - make it known! Let me know, I'll get into contact with users of the area, Ranger Bob and our bolting committee full of patron-saints. Most are in consensus that if we care about out little "after-work" crag on marys it will take communication to diffuse any future vandalism to the route... more >>

Comments: Otherwise known as Clark Shelk's - Tick Ranch.

There was a topo up on his website revolutionclimbing.com, its gone now. It was a popular bouldering area at one point, and there is a .12 something sport line that watt's established thats apparently stellar and historic. There is at least 6 bolted lines here, maybe a few more.

If anyone wants the Shelk topo he put up and thats now down - email me

Location: OR : Portland & The Gorge : P-IKE Boulders

Comments: The best thing to be said about the Pike boulders (visited and bouldered 3 times) is that it is a small chunk of what you find at the Garden near Sweet Home or Carver boulders near estecada. If more pikes were cropping up around the Willy Valley, it would be great, local bouldering for all. But alexander dietz is right in that, few keep the place clean, whether or not your t-passing is still up in the air, and for the drive, I've got waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy better boulders for anyone in ... more >>

Comments: Still trying to determine whether the bolts on top of the band were vandalized/removed by Brent O'Neil, the person who installed them, or another party. In either event trees a couple feet back from the lumps top works great for top-roping.

If the pitons are truly controversial to you - go take em.

I am in contact with the local Ranger in charge of Marys Peak and he has no problem with em. Other climbers are leading routes where pitons don't disappear so.... Pitons are as worthless in that ... more >>

Comments: They should rename this route Greasy Crack 5.10-. With the amount of boot rubber and human flesh greased up both sides of, it brings new meaning to the term "well-traveled" route.

Comments: Feels LONG!!!!!

For its grade this climb can tend to feel enduro. No easy climbing breaks up difficult movement. I never remembered feeling a particular crux, just long sustained climbing at the same difficulty.

Comments: For over 5-6 years this was my standard of success that was never reached.

Who knew that it would take 10 years of climbing and a return visit to Southern Oregon to finally dispatch it!

great climb.

Comments: The climb to start on at the Rattlesnake. If you visit this area - CLIMB THIS ROUTE!!!!!

5.10- moves leading to 5.10+/- moves to its crux at the very top - stellar climb. Even to take a few times through the 5.10c/d crux at the very top- 5.10- climbers should get on this climb. Where arabesque and split decision tended to be the "warm-up" climb for the Rattlesnake Crags for at least a decade- this climb should have been.

All of the difficulty of this climb lies in the top 10 moves whil... more >>

Comments: This problem has been called The Good V3


There is a V2/1 bailout after the first couple moves. To top this thing out actually feels a little easier than V3 but the truth of it is if you ask any of the initial developers about Garden Grades they'll tell you that everyone was climbing so hard, yet getting stumped by problems and cruxes in all grade ranges that to simplify things they acquired a very John Gillesque, B3 esque, V3 grade that may understate or overstate the difficulty.

I'm all in ... more >>

Comments: This problem has also been called Godfrey Corner. E and E had another name but I forgot it. Around the corner to the right of this problem is a V-fun mantle problem that is very manageable. In fact, another highish V-fun problem recently got cleaned to the right of it making for a good warm-up area- which can be hard to find at the Garden. These Warm-ups and the problem in the photo are quickly accessed from the now illegal parking lot utilizing a short bit of Weyerhauser road. To walk this... more >>

Comments: This boulder is also known as Mini-Me. The problem is not, but the boulder is. Where the climber is climbing there is a great eliminate problem utilizing sloper holds that has been called KISS or Knights in the Service of Steve.

Comments:

Otherwise known as Fight Club Boulder.

Fight Club is actually the more steeper problem to the left of this starting at the boulders lowest point and going for its most difficult moves.

I personally sent this problem (not fight club, but what this climber is climbing on the left flank of Fight club boulder) in 2002.

Comments: To the right of the climber in photo is a V-easy V-fun highish slab problem, a touch easier than the low start traverse problems with its multiple top out options.

The V-harder traverse starts with an amazing sit start down and to the climbers left of this problem. Someday the starting jug will snap. It is surprising that my chunky ass hasn't ripped it loose despite the laps i've put on this v-good quality traverse.
