> Willamette Valley
Flagstone is a beautiful rock found just off a forest service backroad in the Oregon wilderness. Originally discovered in the mid 1980's, this crag remained a "locals only" crag for many years, but has since transitioned into being a popular destination within the Willamette Valley region.
The rock has three aspects facing North, East, and West. A trail skirts the entire rock and can be used as a walk-off descent from the top. The rock is andesite and of high quality. The best climbs combine friction, edges, and balance together on dark grey rock. At times the place can be secluded and other times you'll feel cramped. Since it is a small place be courteous.
From I-5 and Eugene take highway 126 east for about 35-40 miles. Really watch the odometer and look for a sign on the right for Quartz Creek Road. Turn onto a narrow road and go over a narrow bridge. This road becomes a forest road #2618. Enjoy viewing clearcuts for the next 14.5 miles and taking a right fork at milepost 11, a left fork at milepost 13. At the junction of 2618 and 350 stay right for another 1/8th of a mile and park in a pullout on the right side of the road. The crag is up and to the left.
Although somewhat obscured from the road there is a climbers trail that leads past a message board and up to the crag (5min)
