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.
This is the obvious off-width/chimney climb to the left of Smooth Torquer. Place your gear in the smaller crack that is on the right and wiggle up the route with your back against the felt wall. It is fairly dirty, but solid rock and fun moves make it worth your time (and with more ascents it is sure to get better). A hollow sounding flake is near the top, but seems to be solid enough...just tred lightly.
Left side of Rock Garden Wall and left of Smooth Torquer.
Gear to 2" and bolted anchor.
