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.
DescriptionBegin just left of the Sanity Assassin Off width. Climb a easy dihedral to a big flake. Jam Or Layback the flake until you get under the bulge. Clip a bolt then make some powerful moves on good holds over the bulge. Some laid down climbing leads to a moderate rest. Next is the crux, either go straight up on small holds, or reach out left to the sloping arete until you reach a jug. Clip a piton, then make some balancy Tip jams that lead to a small ledge below the anchor.
The second pitch is 5.9 trad that leads to the top of the cliff, but it is likely that no one has done it in a long time, meaning it would be really dirty.
