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.
A strong crux off the ground leads to more balancy climbing with good holds above. Fun small edges and pockets keep the climbing entertaining through most of the first pitch.
Smerk is the bolted face climb immediately left of New Generation (the 5.8 crack). Five bolts to the first anchor (11a). The second pitch of this is also reasonably clean and pretty good. Four more bolts to another anchor (10c). A 60m rope will get you down from the 2nd pitch anchor. The third pitch is overgrown and seldom done.
