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/.
What appears to be a beautiful dihedral climb hides a nasty secret. Make bouldery moves on the protruding features at the base of the crack to get into the corner. Watch out for the poison oak here. Climb this wonderful feature, utilizing holds and chips on the right face, to get up into the wide crack with numerous chockstones. Find the key hold and don't be afraid to grab the chunks... it might be impossible if you don't. A non-locking finger jam may give you enough purchase to get your feet on whatever and pull left and eventually get a real finger-lock. Pull desperately into the victory romp. End at the ledge that shares an anchor with the leftward-finish option of Windows of Your Mind.
