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.

Getting There 

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.

After the crack opens up to hands, the angle kicks back and you can enjoy a low-angle, upside-down version of Gold Rush to a sling anchor on the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
