Great crack climbing followed by an exciting roof make this a highly memorable climb.Start in a obvious crack just left of a flat face and right of a bolted column. Climb pleasant 5.9 hands with face holds up to a two bolt anchor with green chains...but don't stop there.Clip the anchor and work up and into the roof above. Climb a finger crack through the roof to a nice ledge above with a bolted anchor. Best to belay from above and rap off....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR

This is the PERFECT crag for developing your trad chops. Excellent routes that deserve to be well-maintained. You will generally find yourself all alone here, and you'll get lots of afternoon sun, which is nice in the colder months. The approach isn't bad either, as the river can be crossed easily from the west side in all but highest of flows just below the cliffs.
