You’ll find this route on the center column facing the lead wall and if you like surprise endings, you’ll dig this route. It has some real fun moves and some fun features. You’ll find a nice mix of pinches and buckets with just enough grit to make a nine.
This is the same route from below climbed a while ago but this time around I’m climbing for a lead test.
Even though this route is rated a 5.9, it climbs more like a 5.8 so it’s what I call an ego climb. Read more
This route is yellow but it was proving to be a white whale. I had tried and failed but this time was different.
Still working through the backlog of unedited clips and I found this route.
I just started climbing with a new friend that is a few inches shorter than me.
Got a hot tip on a new outdoor place from a friend so we decided to check it out today. This place had no name, a single bolted route rated a 5.9+ and a whole bunch of top rope-able stuff.
The only downside is that neither of us can climb beyond the first bolt on an outside 5.9 and we arrived too late to set up anchors. We ended up messing around a bit before giving up for another day.
Its twenty minutes north of Portland and a 15 minute flat walk approach. Great to know this ledge is nearby.
