Description

A small basalt crag on the Deschutes River minutes from Redmond. There's a few short, quality routes on the west-facing cliff just below the falls and a decent amount of bouldering downstream. Any history is welcome...

The routes stay in the shade until around 3pm in the summer, then get shade again an hour before sunset. There's some graffiti and litter, but otherwise a pleasant vibe. In 2017, the 100-year old Cline Falls dam and power plant were removed, restoring the area to a more natural state.

Getting There

Drive 4 miles west of Redmond on 126. Park along the large pullout with on the north side of the highway, across from the entrance to Cline Falls State Park. At the start of the pullout take a trail downhill, when you hit the river walk right (downstream). When you reach the falls you can scramble down to the river, following a path through the bushes and tiptoe around the water to the start of the righthand routes. An easier approach takes an gully down through the cliff about 100 yards downstream of the falls, or several easy options a bit further. This makes more sense if accessing the boulders, and may be necessary in the fall and winter when the river is higher. 10 minute approach.
