The only bolted line on the Shakespeare Cliff. A fun start pulling over the roof gets harder as you climb up. The route starts working the left side of the arete but works both sides as the column narrows at the top. The crux comes at the 2nd to last bolt where blank arete slapping and lousy feet lead to a desperate clipping hold. Looking for others input so we can get this route information more accurate...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR

This is the PERFECT crag for developing your trad chops. Excellent routes that deserve to be well-maintained. You will generally find yourself all alone here, and you'll get lots of afternoon sun, which is nice in the colder months. The approach isn't bad either, as the river can be crossed easily from the west side in all but highest of flows just below the cliffs.
