Description Suggest change

This section stretches from north to south from Salem to Cottage Grove right down the fertile valley, and east to west from the Coast Range into the Willamette National Forest. There aren't any super popular crags here, but they are loved by the locals who climb them.

A number of relatively modern sport crags exist, so check out Eagles Rest, Lookout Point, and the Garden.  There is quality bouldering at the Garden, TRing at Skinner Butte, big walls at Wolf Rock, and quality trad at Moolack. With an active local community, new options sprout up each year.
