Description

Given a 5.7 grade in Tim Olson's Portland Rock Climbs book, this route is thin and intimidating even for the 5.8 grade. Start up a slabby face with a shallow crack near a tall oak tree, just before heading around/up to the start of South East Corner. Utilize face holds while finagling small gear into the pods in the crack, continuing upwards through a very thin section of the crack (long reach helpful). Hit a roof, step left with good gear, then continue up through a few more hand-foot matches to grassy ledges. Traverse right to the Pitch 2 anchors of South East Corner. Continue up via this route or rap from two fat Metolius bolts.

NOTE: This route was originally named "Cruisemaster" but was later changed to "Cruisin'" to avoid confusion with other -master routes nearby.

Location

Past the start for Young Warriors, before the start for Little Wing and South East Corner. At a belay platform below a big oak tree.

Protection

Gear to 2" (nuts are especially useful)
