The rock is volcanic. (duh). However it's different from the other basalt and andesite crags, this may be Rhyolitic Tuff, with pockets, wierd pillowy slopers, and ample underclings. Not too sharp, decent quality, but you may battle some moss here.
Steep enough to stay dry in the rain, at least on part of the wall.
PLEASE, comment if you've developed here. There is a mixed bolts and gear route that I'd like to fully bolt, with permission of course. I respect all (responsible) styles of climbing and development, but it's my opinion that this wall is better suited to full on sport climbing than trad climbing above cams placed in pockets or behind flakes. Not sure if this route has been sent or not, please contact or comment if you have info. Thanks!
A couple min East of Oakridge turn right on Hills Creek/Kitson Springs road. Then another quick right on NF-21 to go around the West side of the reservoir. Then turn right on NF-2102, a fully paved but sometimes singled laned forest road. Easy to miss this turn. Drive up 1300 feet of vert.
Park at the MTB trail parking and take an immediate left to go uphill. I don't condone shortcutting but it is possible to bypass some of the gratuitous MTB switchbacks.
