Description

Small wilderness area located in the Willamette National Forest. This is the infamous crag you've heard rumors of. 20 miles east of Sweet Home lie some of the most unique and peculiar volcanic formations and pinnacles in Oregon, the most famous of these being the Turkey Monster formation, an improbable 350 foot tall volcanic plug that is larger in center than its base. The best way I could describe the climbing is as being dirty, adventurous, alpine cragging. What to expect: bold routes, moss, long runouts, A relentless (but beautiful) approach, many bad bolts, seclusion, choss, satisfying summits, very good stories and more moss.

Getting There

Lower Menagerie:
Head East through Sweet Home on Hwy 20 for about 20 miles. Look for the rooster rock trail head sign; rooster rock trail is your approach.

Upper Menagerie:
