(3) Tail and Opossum Rock Climbing
The Opossum is the highest of the Marsupial formations that are in line with Brogan Spire, and the Tail sits just below it. The Wombat looms above them.
These formations are notable for their remarkable position, but not for the routes that they hold. To date, few lines reach the summits, although there is certainly potential for more. Perhaps they will even be good, as the rock is not uniformly atrocious.
These formations are easily recognized from vantage points all around. They are directly uphill and in line with Brogan Spire, in the Marsupial Crags.

It's long, and provides satisfaction when you gain a couple of awesome summits that are rarely gained otherwise. As long as you're up there, I would highly recommend summiting both the Tail and ...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
