DescriptionThis is a new cragging area recently developed by Bryan Burdo with 60 routes from 5.6 to 5.11. It consists of several sub-areas, and the routes are mostly well bolted sport lines with a couple trad lines. All have bolted anchors.
Climbing here is great for avoiding crowds at Fun Rock and Prime Rib, and is best for shoulder season climbing or summer days that aren't too hot.
A guidebook supplement with route specifics, photos, and grades can be obtained from the good folks at the Goat's Beard in Mazama.
The sub-areas, from left to right, are The Mezzanine, Perfecto Pillar, Deja Vu, The Spearhead, and Crackstar Lounge. Further down and to the right are Doorstep and Sweet Spot. The approach trail brings one up below the right side of the crag near Spearhead and Crackstar Lounge.
Getting ThereAfter stuffing down some pastries at the Mazama Store and grabbing your beta at the Goat's Beard, head SE from the 3-way intersection for 5 min (1.9 miles), turn left on Forest Service road #52, and in a few hundred feet park at the Goat Creek Snopark.
The trail takes off from the S side of the parking area. Approach time is about 10 minutes.
Appreciate the new trail that was recently built by local climbers and the Forest Service by staying on the trail and not cutting switchbacks please.
