Description

This large area is split into 5 different talus fields. Each area has dozens of boulders, ranging from V0-V10.
The boulders range from small (6'-8') to over 40' tall, a good many falling in the 12'-20' range. Everything from overhangs, roofs, slabs, and vertical faces exist here. The rock is very textured without being sharp. A lot of the holds here tend to be sloped, but very sticky due to the texture. (though there is no shortage of crimpy problems!) Very good quality boulders. Landings can be dicey in a few spots due to the talus field, so bring pads, and a spotter if possible. Also, there is no cell reception, so keep that in mind.
Boulders are about an hour and 45 min from Portland, going through Hood River.
Boulders have been developed by a wide variety of climbers. Grading standards seem to vary, so rather than worrying about grades, find a good looking line, and get on it, or clean a new one! Refer to maps for trails, and some of the boulders. A lot of boulders have been cleaned since the map was made, so go explore!
Most likely to be wet or under snow in the winter and spring. Good summer and fall climbing area for sure though!
Since the guidebook has come out there has been a lot more traffic up here. Please be respectful of cyclists and other drivers on the road as well as cleaning up after yourself at the camp and around the boulders. The regular climbers have been finding trash and seeing a lot of tick marks and have been cleaning them up, however, that should be something every climber takes care of themselves!
The rock is very porous and already showing signs of holds getting caked with chalk as well. Please brush off chalk the best you can, so that holds stay in good shape for other climbers.
