The northern end is home to Trout's lower-angled, easier cracks. This is an excellent place to bring newcomers who aren't going to have fun on 5.10 cracks.
Take the new trail that leaves the river after passing a bench on the right and after the river road jogs around a small berm. This trail was put in so that folks looking for 5.8-5.9 cracks wouldn't have to go the long way around and boulder hop across the whole main wall to and from the Northern End.

Shasta 5.8 OR : Trout Creek : The Northern End
"Classic and a crag favorite for the grade. Don't let the wide start scare you away from this quality route. Shasta is the first of many climbs providing excellent rests at breaks in the columns. Step right to finish on the [Lively Up Yourself] anchor. Named in honor of a late, great crag dog." - from Jeff Wenger's Trout Creek Climbing Guide...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
