Climbed a bit out here since the late 90's. Too bad the rock is not more solid as the cliff is quite tall. Some of the routes are OKAY. There is an area nearby that contains some very solid cracks in the 5.8-5.10 range.

2010 I chopped and poisoned oak and blackberry throughout the base of the cliff AGAIN! Then the Druid Stones showed up,little reason to go back to Harlan!

Checked the place out when I used to live in Corvallis. Not worth the drive, though it is a bigger version of the chossy roadcuts which have become popular around C-town.

Lots of poison oak out here, be careful!

The rock isn't in the best shape, and it is kind of wet. Lots of the holds have mud/slime in em too...

Lot of loose rock, and the rock has been degraded due to water damage

Also, some of the routes/bolts are pretty sketch.

I know the area header states Harlen Rock Quarry, but the signs at Burnt Woods and the right turn indicate the spelling is Harlan.
