Mind Games is one of the most unique routes at Rocky Butte. More people would climb it if it were more widely known how to access the area. Start by gaining the belay ledge, either by rappelling in or climbing up 20' from the forest floor. Ascend an easy, blocky start up to the chimney. Stem and grunt up the large flaring chimney before making a tricky exit move to the anchor.


Walk along the cliff-top trail Northwest from the Video Bluff. Look for a lone Allen bolt/hanger on top of a rock at the cliff's edge. This is the access area for Mind Games.

Accessing Mind Games from the base of the wall is possible by climbing a short (roughly 20') section of easy 5th class rock and gaining the belay ledge with a belay anchor.


A full rack up to 6 inches. Protection is plentiful.
