BETA PHOTO: Edge of Might


This is the route just to the right of Robotics that starts on the slab. Clip the first two bolts then angle slightly right to the arÍte which is used repeatedly for slapping. Several good rests allow for recovery and contemplation.

Edge of Might is one of the least physical 5.11's you will encounter around Portland. Balance and good footwork are key to getting up this climb. Edge of Might is one of (if not) the best route on the Video Bluff. Unfortunately, water seeps down this climb from the top making non-summer ascents hard to come by.


Starts just to the right of Robotics.


Fully bolted sport climb with an old chain anchor at the top.
