Probably the most popular wall at the Butte. Rock is basalt and is a bit slick - especially early or late climbing season. This is a short 30-40ft wall, which has about a dozen routes, all of which can be top-roped. There are couple sport-leads too.
This is the first wall right (looking towards the wall from the bottom) of Silver Bullet Bluff. Take Fremont road which turns into Rocky Butte Road.

The wall will be forward and slightly left of the main trail there.

Several good rests allow for recovery and contemplation. Edge of Might is one of the least physical 5.11's you will encounter around Portland. Balance and good footwork are key to getting up this climb. Edge of Might is one of (if not) the best route on the Vide...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
