Comments: We were climbing in mid-March this year, granted we were belaying on snow, but the routes were dry. I'd say by end of April in most years the snow will be gone, with some of the routes on Goat wall being wet in spring. Now, Washington Pass just up the road is a different story...

Comments: There are now bolts with chains at the top of the upper section, but you aren't missing too much if you skip it. Bottom section is actually pretty fun with some finger locks and can probably be lead on gear.

Comments: Route defined by one hard move about half way up. Tough belay spot as are most at Hills Creek Spires.

Comments: I spent the summer in Oakridge, OR and went climbing at Hills Creek a few times. I added some of the routes that I was able to get on. It's a beautiful place that is definitely worth checking out, although I will caution you with this. This is definitely adventurous climbing. If you are used to level belays, easy approaches and solid rock, this may not be the place for you. However, if you are looking for a place with no crowds with some sense of mystique, head on down.
