Description

Didn't see any parties on any routes on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.

Rock quality was decent, at least on the Peregrine Traverse.

Getting There

From I-5 take Canyonville exit, taking Douglas County Highway 1 to Tiller, OR. Go NE on BLM Road 28 for 16.8 mi. Turn right on NF-28/S Umpqua Road. Go 1.9 mi and turn right on NF-29. Go 5.7 mi and turn left on NF-2838. Go 1.5 mi and turn left on NF-950. Drive to the gate and park on the side. Do not block the gate.

Hike up hill on NF-950 about 0.5 mile carefully looking for pink or orange flagged trail entrance on left side of road.

Follow flagged trail about 0.5 mile to reach the climbing.

As of October 30 the register shows 74 climbers on the Peregrine Traverse between June and November in-spite of the smoke this summer. We've found weekends to be a little crowded, by SW OR standards, but weekdays to be mellow. Week days are also your best option for renting the Lookout especially in the Fall, my favorite time for climbing Acker.
This summer we added rap chains on Maltese Falcon suitable for 30 m raps and a set or rap chains for the short rap from the top of Eagle's Dare into the saddle.
