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.
DescriptionA decent little climb. Solo half-way up the left side of the Chemistry Slab and look for a black painted hanger on the left wall. Clip this and start the traverse. There's a fixed pin shortly after the first bolt, clip it with a quickdraw if you enjoy rope-drag. Make a couple of moves out left to join the last bolt and climbing of Angular Motion. Out On A Limb is a bit spicy as a fall in the middle of the traverse (crux) would put you on or very near the slab behind you. Despite this, it's a fun, worthwhile climb and the necky section only lasts for a move or two. If you don't come down with at least a little bit of yellow lichen on your clothes, you are not doing this climb right.
There is a totally ignored second pitch that's mossed over. Skip it or risk your hide like I did a few years back.
