|This area is BEAUTIFUL!!!! The views are amazing and the area is very clean. The no climbing signs are clear yet they should be a bit bigger. The trail going past the no-climb are is overgrown and it may be a good idea to move it a bit downhill to avoid that area all together. Some of the routes are very mossy but overall the area is amazing!!!!|

Lots of moss growth on some of the walls/routes. Not much loose rock, but the belayer would probably appreciate a helmet for some of the rock/moss/sand detritus that inevitably gets knocked loose. Sunglasses to keep the moss out of the eyes is also a good idea.
Trail very dusty mid-summer. A kind soul left a tarp to help keep ropes dust free. Necessary to keep your rope even semi-clean.
P.S This place is amazing. Innumerable thanks to the developers.

This area is decent at best with a lot of potential. Why are you locals trying to hide this??? Some more traffic would go a long way in a place like this for cleaning it up some more.
A surprising amount of newly bolted moderate routes, and plenty of cracks. Don't miss the right fork on the trail to head up to the crag.

less concern on the hiding tip - its in a guide! - northwestoregonrock.com
Its a quality spot and the publishing is a good transtion for the area.

This is a sweet-ass trad zone. Views of Mt. Hood's elusive east side and the rushing Hood River below. Splitter basalt columns an hour-and-a-half from Portland. Unknown predecessors have already put up a score of great climbs which are badly in need of some TLC. A crew of us will hopefully be doing some work up there in the next few months - fortifying trails, cleaning cracks, trundling widow-makers, and putting in new lines. If anybody has any questions or knows who to contact about this, please let me know.
Traditionalists, expect good things to come!
