DescriptionThis amazing knobby rock, with over 3,000 feet of often easy routes and occasionally multi-pitch bolted climbs and interesting pinnacles, make this a face and knob climbers paradise. Highly recommended, unique and nearly unlike anything in Oregon. (it is very likely that this will turn out to be some of the best winter water ice climbing in the state as well).

Getting ThereFrom Portland, take I-205 to highway 224 towards Estacada. Go 22 miles past Estacada's only traffic signal, past mile marker 45 and make a right turn just BEFORE the road crosses a green bridge. From this turn, parking for the crag is just over 10 miles. After turning, you will immediately pass two turn-offs for Indian Henry state park; camping on the left and hiker parking on the right. Go past milepost 2.5 where you will see a beaver pond. From here you are about a mile, as the crow flies, from the cliff. By car, you still have another 7.5 miles to go. The paved road will turn to gravel, stay right at all forks in the road staying on the better/more obvious road. This will keep you following National Highway development road #4620 (also called The Sandstone road) until it turns into road # 4622. After 10 miles you will see a "road closed" sign on the right. Park and hike down the closed forest road until you come to a slash-pile and a view of the crag to the north. Hike into the woods towards the crag following the crest until the trail turns left and downhill continuing to the base.
