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/.
The start is a bit precarious, so consider anchoring your belayer with a long sling around the tree. Start up a thin crack with nearby face features; your first piece comes at about 10'. From here it opens to thin hands, though grabby holds are available. This feature ends at a small, bushy ledge. From here, go straight up the arete, clipping bolts as you go. Step left across a thin face at the last bolt and into the short final crack that ends at the anchor stance.
On a raised platform near a huge madrone tree whose root forms the means of access. Just right of Plywood Jungle.
