Description 

Very Small Bouldering Area located near the town of Yamhill. This newly discoverd bouldering area is small. The best part being that the drive is short from McMinnville. There are really only two boulders 10-15ft. Routes ranging from V0-V4. The rock varies in quality. The routes required a lot of cleaning. Not really worth your time unless you're local.


Getting There 

From McMinnville go east on hwy 99w then take hwy 47 north towards Carlton and Yamhill. Drive on 47 to Yamhill passing thru Carlton. Once in Yamhill continue straight until you begin to leave town, the road curves right. Hear you turn left on Pike rd. Follow Pike Rd. for about 5 or 10 mins. Turn left on a gravel road called Rocky Ford. You should pass over a river immediately from turning of Pike rd. Once on Rocky Ford take an immediate right on another gravel road. Drive about 200m and look to your left up the hill are the boulders.

Featured Route For P-IKE Boulders
First move of Blue Eyed Miles. Definitely the most explosive. Note these are the starting feet.

Blue Eyed Miles V4- 6B  OR : P-IKE Boulders
See the route guide for the pioneer boulder. Starts both hands on the lower rail. First move is a slap out to the right arete. Then move up to the crimp. Stand up into the sloper and lean out far to grab the lip up left. finishes on the same holds as Insane in Elaine. Definitely the most fun problem in the P-Ike area....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR

This place is crap I just went today and there was a rockfall on on the magic bus boulder its very over grown and most of the terrain is steep wouldn't recommend making a trip out unless you desperate.....

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 the Willamette Valley near Corvallis.

Honestly just needs a few people to head out and really develop it. Lots of potential its just overgrown. Video of our conquests on what weve dubbed the "pioneer boulder"

Was passing through the area so I stopped by to take a look (No gear with me, sadly)

Pretty cool little spot! I'll definitely be coming back. Low traffic, and mossy, so be prepared to do some cleaning.
