Access Issue: Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY!
This is very important to remember, and the rules associated with climbing here must be respected if it is to remain open to climbers. In order to climb or boulder at this area you must sign a waiver and pay a one-time $8 fee at the Carver Climbing Club. Be sure to carry photo ID with you when you're at the area. Respect the land owner's property, don't litter, don't add or remove any bolts without permission, etc. It would be a big loss to the Portland climbing community if Carver were to be closed to us so do your part to keep it open and accessable.
Like Broughton Bluff and Rocky Butte, Carver is a popular Portland crag. It's a bit more of a drive from the downtown area than the other crags but it's still popular on the weekends and after work in the summer. It is comprised of a single cliff band approximately 80ft. high with a bunch of boulders scattered on the hillside below.
Private Property Note: You must be a signed member of the Carver Climbing Club to climb or boulder on Stone Cliff property and/or property owned by the Rosenbaum family, which the entirety of the boulders and cliff are. Dogs are not allowed. You must have picture ID and membership card with you at all times. Here are the rest of the Carver Rules and Obligations.
This area is located in the small town of Carver, Oregon. From the Portland area take I-205 South towards Clackamas and get off at Exit 12A (watch for signs to Hwy. 212 East). Take 212 for approximately 3 miles until 224 splits off to the right to Carver. Go through town and veer right to cross the bridge over the river. Take a left at the 'T' intersection on the far side of the bridge.
There are two options for parking: The first is the Stone Cliff Inn parking lot, which may be used by members all days except holidays and Friday and Saturday evenings from 5pm on. The trail to the boulders and cliff is obvious, at the section of the lot furthest from the front door. The second option is the pullout at the intersection of Hattan and Gronlund Rd about 100m further down on the right.
