Access Issue: 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.
Start on the far left margin of the Yellow Wall and move up a low angled ramp trending right. After clipping the first bolt step across the gap onto the slab. Alternatively, climb the crack, skipping the first bolt, for a more direct start. Traverse across the slab into a few technical, vertical moves and pull up to a ledge. Move 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 anchor.
