Seasonal Raptor Closure 2015 - Several Areas MORE INFO >>>


For good reason, one of the most climbed 5.12 sport routes in the Lower Gorge. Continuously enjoyable and interesting moves in sustained, varied and technical terrain create this classic climb. The crux is about 2/3rds up.


Wildfire Wall, South side of the Crooked River.
Starts on a block leaning against the wall and veers up and left.

This is one of many stupendous routes in the Lower Gorge pioneered by John Rich. He recently extended the route on overhanging jugs (10c - bolt protected) for a full value 100' pitch!

FWIW, the extension is in-credible! Definitely do it. Unlike anything else at the grade in the Park.
