This permit covers Non-Motorized walk-in access to the Coos Bay Millicoma Tree Farm, including the Callahans climbing area west of Roseburg, Oregon.
When parking on Touchstone Rd, do not block the school bus turnaround and be respectful of all neighbors. As private timberland, climber compliance with the permit system is critical for Access Fund and SW Oregon Climbers Coalition to explore future improved access with Weyerhaeuser, such as a recreational lease.

Start in the trees at downhill base of the east Schoolhouse formation. Begins on ledges and pockets to a bulge at third bolt using undercut feet and poor holds. Above this easier climbing leads to crux (5.11a) at fifth bolt with a series of delicate and strenuous moves, followed by a scramble to the top. Crux can be avoided by making with a run-out moving well right of the fifth bolt.
