The 700ft. tall Picnic Lunch Wall strikes a commanding pose over the Crooked River as one descends the trail down from the parking lot. The Picnic Lunch Wall is flanked by the Red Wall on the right and the Shiprock on the left.

A pair of good edges up & left lead to a vertical slot in a shallow seam, and a few more tenous moves to get established above the roof. Once above the roof, continue up rounded flakes & qui...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
