This route packs a whole lot into one pitch. The crux is a compression boulder problem similar to Child Abuse or The Caning, but two lesser cruxes involve bouldery face climbing on positive crimps. The route starts on the prominent arete under the first bolt. Prepare to use three aretes, power face climbing, and a little bit of body position mastery as you fight the pump and solve the sequences. It is easy to top rope Masquerade off of the anchors, and a worthy link up between the two could e...[more] Browse More Classics in OR

The approach for this wall is only "relatively long" by lower gorge standards. Even with thick undergrowth, it takes 5 minutes max to reach Jungle land from Star Wall. Getting to the East columns when the water is to high to rock hop takes far longer. Besides the existing routes here, there is much potential for new routes underneath the bushes and lichen covering some of the taller columns right of Masquerade and some obvious looking columns await exploration to the left of that route as well. The recent addition of Charlie Don't Surf offers a more difficult but less gross way to access the Masquerade anchors than the traditional chimney approach. The new anchors for Charlie Don't Surf allow for an easy toprope of Masquerade as well (not that doing the moves on Masquerade will feel easy!) Those two routes together more than justify the short bushwhack out to Jungle Land, and are both routes that should be on the to-do list of any aspiring Lower Gorge hardperson or anyone looking to sample some harder basalt climbing without venturing to the upper gorge.
