Access Issue: Seasonal Peregrine Closure Details
The park closes on February 1st and remains closed until July 15th to protect nesting peregrine falcons. Their annual nesting spot is on the Shining Wall, though they can be heard year-round. Please respect the closure and DO NOT CLIMB AT MADRONE WALL BETWEEN FEB 1st AND JULY 15th. Updates to the status of the park will posted on Clackamas County Park's website - clackamas.us/parks/madronew… - and on the Madrone Wall Preservation Committee facebook page - facebook.com/madronewall/.
An excellent beginner route with a little spice to make it memorable. Climb into the deep corner and either place gear early or step up to the first stance and plug a piece here. Follow the thin crack as it widens, stemming out to the right. There are some loose chunks in the broken cracks on the right face, but they are easy to avoid. Eventually make an intuitive, airy step to the right. Consider your second and place a piece before pulling on jugs to the ledge. A few more awkward moves take you up to the anchor ledge 10' above. From here you can set a top-rope for Divine Wind.
