Description

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.

Bouldering at the Garden, big walls at Wolf Rock, sport at Flagstone, and maybe some good stuff elsewhere...
