DescriptionA beautiful pink cliff in Mt. Hood National Forest, this area receives sun all day.
Only a few routes have been climbed here, so loose rock is present on the unclimbed lines- especially above the talus field where the cliff is actively shedding flakes. Unclimbed rock in the forest at either end is very solid, but requires some gardening.
Nearly 200 ft. tall and a over a 1/4 mile long, this area could support many more routes and become a wonderful 'backcountry crag' with an easy, flat approach.
ADMIN NOTE: Reminder that this area is in the Mt Hood Wilderness, which means all bolts must be drilled by hand, and all fixed gear (anchors) must be natural colored slings.
Getting ThereThe approach takes a casual hour on a well established and flat trail.
Any internet search or hiking guide book will get you to the trailhead for Ramona Falls (I'll leave this sleuthing to you). Take all left branches in the trail to reach the cliff without backtracking-- the trail is a loop though, so you can't really get lost. The cliff will be impossible to miss while hiking the trail, it's location is even mentioned in most guidebook descriptions of the trail.
