(3) Video Bluff Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Video Bluff 5th Class Descent. Scramble Descent to...
Probably the most popular wall at the Butte. Rock is basalt and is a bit slick - especially early or late climbing season. This is a short 30-40ft wall, which has about a dozen routes, all of which can be top-roped. There are couple sport-leads too.
This is the first wall right (looking towards the wall from the bottom) of Silver Bullet Bluff. Take Fremont road which turns into Rocky Butte Road. Follow this until there is a big 90-degree turn and you start uphill. Park on the gravel shoulder just left of the crazy-church-domes (resist urge to climb the domes). Follow a trail into the trees. The wall will be forward and slightly left of the main trail there.

This is the route just to the right of Robotics that starts on the slab. Clip the first two bolts then angle slightly right to the arête which is used repeatedly for slapping. Several good rests allow for recovery and contemplation. Edge of Might is one of the least physical 5.11's you will encounter around Portland. Balance and good footwork are key to making progress. Edge of Might is one of (if not) the best route on the Video Blu...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
