Description 

With routes ranging from 5.6 to 5.13, and a 15 second approach, this is the perfect crag for just about any sport climber. The wall receives sun beginning in the late morning, with the south end of the wall entering the sun first. The overhanging section of the wall remains shaded until late afternoon.

Due to poor landings and difficult starts, stick clipping is recommended for most routes on this wall.

Getting There 

Mother’s Day wall is the middle of the three main fins present North of the road about 1/4 mile past the pullout for French Gultch Slab. Park at the pullout for French Gultch or at the base of the wall. If parking at the base of the wall, park on the South side of the road (opposite side from the wall) to allow your vehicle to be visible on the sharp curve.

Fantastic! Every hold is a jug except for the start. Cruise up layback flakes to exciting moves out onto the first ledge. Finish with some easy climbing to the second ledge and anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR

We were surprised to discover just how short this wall is! Combined with close bolting, these routes are easily knocked off in quick succession, if you are up for it. The rock grabs nicely, but isn't sharp enough to hurt.

The slope is pretty steep beside the wall, and quite loose, so stick clipping is definitely a good idea.
