Description

Small basalt cliff that has about 30 climbs, mostly all mixed gear climbs, so bring your trad rack. Majority of the climbs run from 5.9-5.11+. Quality of rock isn't too bad, though its not stellar. Poison oak does grow in the area, so keep an eye out for it.

Getting There

Google Maps Link
Driving on HWY14 from White Salmon, take a left on Old Highway 8, and follow it to just past the main lake. You will see the cliff on the uphill side of the road a few hundred feet past the lake.
