Description 

This east facing wall is a popular locale on warmer days as it becomes shaded around noon. Previously routes were constricted to the area around the classic Phoenix (10.a). In the last few years however there has been a flurry of development in this area and between Phoenix and Asterik pass.

The rock here ranges from choss to a high quality dark red tuff.


Getting There 

Continue on the river path past the trails leading up to the dihedrals and asterik pass. As the trail turns south look for a climbers trail up to the right (west) leading up to the reddish colored rock.

A tricky crux past a bulge down low can be bypassed by cheating left to the arete. The best part of the route is above this in the steep, beautiful finishing slab, finessing moves between small pockets....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
