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/.
Not sure how Olson forgot to mention that this route REQUIRES a 2" cam to protect the first few moves, but there it is. Climb up the highly-featured face making use of angular holds that are never oriented quite the right direction. Step right around the corner, then back left below the roof. Pull hard onto the face above. Climb the easy slab past the madrone tree to the new anchors.
On a small dirt ledge next to an old madrone tree whose root has formed a means of access from the trail below... just right of the Beginner's Luck alcove
