Description

This is the 5 star route here and a must do!
Climb up good holds on the right side of the "cave" to a large hold about 30' up. Pull a quick cruxy move, and shake out. Work up to a high clip and then figure the unique crux out, requiring both technique, power and compression. Get a final shake on the jug, and then finish the last pumpy moves to the anchor. A surprisingly sustained route, despite the several good holds and (mostly) vertical terrain.

Location

third route to the left.

Protection

8 bolts plus two for the anchor. Rap Rings on the anchor.

Willamette Valley climbers get stoked! A proud line up the beautify prow. Powerful (dynamic?) move down low then an awesome techy crux section up high moving through sidepull features which generates a good pump for the slightly easier run to the anchors. In warmer weather conditions are best in the morning when the trees keep the route mostly shaded, and in the final hour before dark. Afternoon is a full sun roast. Apr 21, 2016

Finally sent this beautiful line. Cleaning the 5.8 revealed a nice side pull and made the ramp much better to kneebar off of moving past the third bolt. The top was still very pumpy and reachy. Sep 29, 2016
A classic at an crag and a fitness test for the grade.

Fantastic stuff here. Jul 10, 2017

The clipping jug at the last bolt before the chains is very loose. Will likely blow soon. I've put an x on it for now. Doesn't look like it will take glue unless someone is willing to drill out behind it to apply. Not sure how developers feel. Definitely dangerous in current state. May 6, 2018

You're welcome to do whatever is needed, I'm moving out of state and probably won't ever make it back to the crag sadly. May 6, 2018

I removed the broken hold at the top of the route. I was hoping to save it. It came off really easily, but it fractured into a bunch of pieces. There is still a little bit of a hold there that might keep it at about the same difficulty. May 26, 2018
