DescriptionThe boulders at Carver lie on private property. Please read up on the access guidelines before climbing here
The bouldering at Carver lies on the hillside below the cliffs. There are currently around 120 established problems here and there is certainly potential for more. Most of the problems are in the V2-V4 range and there are a handful of V9-V10s and plenty in between.
Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! Details
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.
Getting ThereThere are two options for accessing the boulders at Carver. The first is via a small trail that leads up from the small pullout just past the bridge. After just a few meters you'll see the Bonzai Boulders.
The other option is to take the main trail that leads to the cliff band. This trail leads past the James Dean boulders. Once at the cliffs take one of a handful of small climber's trails downhill to the boulders.
