Description

The Wallowas are more famous for backpack trips and its beautiful alpine lakes. With a little imagination, the rock climbing could (in the distant future) be a popular climbing area. With Sacajawea Peak as the high point (9880), the rock in these mountains is Yosemite like granite with some basalt and limestone/marble walls. Many of the granite walls range from 100 feet to 1,000 + foot walls, rare for Oregon. With very few known existing routes, some good places to explore are Eagle Cap, Main Eagle Creek, Pine Lakes, the Matterhorn, Cusick Mountain, Hawkins Pass area, and the Blue Hole for deep water bouldering. The Mountains are in a wilderness area so no drills (and preferably no bolts). Great 1st ascent adventure climbing! Season is only July-September because of the 20 + feet of snow every year!
