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.
Description [Suggest Change]
With more ascents this route will definitely get less mossy, but probably not less slick. The crux comes just after the second bolt and lasts for about five moves. A couple of moves go straight above the bolt, but then veer to your right. The upper slab is fun, but mossy. Get ready to crimp and hang on tight...Smooth Torquer is what the name implies and more stout than Rip Grip.
