Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! Details
This is very important to remember, and the rules associated with climbing here must be respected if it is to remain open to climbers. In order to climb or boulder at this area you must sign a waiver and pay a one-time $8 fee at the Carver Climbing Club. Be sure to carry photo ID with you when you're at the area. Respect the land owner's property, don't litter, don't add or remove any bolts without permission, etc. It would be a big loss to the Portland climbing community if Carver were to be closed to us so do your part to keep it open and accessable.
DescriptionStart left of Digital on a low angled ramp. After Clipping the first bolt move right across a large flake onto a slab. Traverse across the slab until you reach a big jug. A couple bolts of 10b climbing lead to a ledge at the Angular Motion anchors. This is an optional belay, but it is best to skip it.
After you reach the ledge climb back left along a horizontal crack system with big holds. Make some technical moves into the Dihedral. Pull out the top of the dihedral, and traverse right along a slab. Some big holds lead to a massive lie back flake. Make some juggy moves, and you are at the second anchor. Almost everyone nowadays lowers at these anchors, as the third pitch hasn't been climbed in a long time, and is really dirty.
