I guess Route #4 is the diagonal crack thing.  There's a bolt high up on the crack, and a chain acnhor at the top.  There also appears to be a bolt ~8  feet left of the crack.

Just right of center, there are at least two sets of bolted anchors in this pic, and bolt with a bail ring on it.  These are probably the right-most routes, but who cares, really.

Climbed a bit out here since the late 90's. Too bad the rock is not more solid as the cliff is quite tall. Some of the routes are OKAY. There is an area nearby that contains some very solid cracks in the 5.8-5.10 range.

Checked the place out when I used to live in Corvallis. Not worth the drive, though it is a bigger version of the chossy roadcuts which have become popular around C-town.

Lots of poison oak out here, be careful!

The rock isn't in the best shape, and it is kind of wet. Lots of the holds have mud/slime in em too...

Lot of loose rock, and the rock has been degraded due to water damage

Also, some of the routes/bolts are pretty sketch.
