Comments: Anyone taken a jog up this yet this year? Any rock fallen out over the winter and the spring thaw?

Comments: Oh I know Peter, I was referring to the specific route this guy posted. There's a ton of great climbing here.

Comments: Sure, however you originally titled and commented on your photo with something like "lots of FAs to be had here!"

Hence my comment.


Also while this site is for sharing stuff, you have to respect the local ethic. Lots of people around Portland have been climbing here, climbing hard, for a long time.

And the locals have left it to be an adventure for anyone who wants to explore it. So sure, the location is here, but trying to claim FAs or speculate on FAs to be had shows a lack of k... more >>

Comments: I've been out to Pickledish twice a week or so this spring, and just a word on parking. The police are actively patrolling the dirt road and stopping to interrogate anyone who looks like a climber due to the situation on the Holt's side of the skiway. Be very mindful of parking at the Skiway and walking up.

If anyone knows this area really well I have some questions and would love to pick your brain.

Thanks.
Jon

Comments: This area should be closed to new route submissions. People have been climbing here for decades, all the rock has been climbed and there are no new lines.

Part of the fun of the place is discovering it for yourself, doing a traverse at high tide, soloing some boulder problem. Or hanging a top rope over some of the secret steep stuff.


This place is a gem, let's keep it that way and not over publicize it. Everyone can see it and knows there is rock there, and curious climbers will find rock... more >>

Comments: People have been climbing here for decades. There are no unclimbed lines at Fort Williams. Don't try and claim the FA, op.


Also, most of this rock is hollow / crumbly, just stay off it.

Comments: There are trees at the top for setting up a top rope, and also some features you can put pro into for a gear anchor.

Comments: This one is about 1/3 over from the right margin of the wall, has a fin of rock at the bottom, and a boulder problem guarding the start.

Comments: Cool spot with delightfully steep climbing. However be advised, There are some HUGE spiders living in the cracks, especially over the river.


As of the time of posting there are still pipes you can make an anchor off, but they're very rusty. You can find easy nut / tricam placements tho to back stuff up for building an anchor.

Comments: This should be downgraded to 5.0 or easy 5th. I think that's appropriate for this climb, if we're using YDS as it's designed.

Comments: Does anyone have any more info about this place? It gets a couple paragraphs in Green's Rock Climbing New England but no info beyond that. Is there a publicly available topo? Or a guide book that someone can link to?

Comments: Magic Ed lists this as 5.5 in his guidebook, which is way too generous. Most of this route is fourth class with just a few feet of super easy actual 5th class moves.

Comments: This climb is a cool climb that leads you up a neat feature, to a unique place in the park, but I feel like I have to add something to the route description-

Pitch 1 is basically 4th class. 5.0/5.1 maybe. Super blocky and low angle and easy.

Pitch 2 is more interesting, but goes at something like 5.3. Definitely not 5.7.

Lastly, I was able to rappel from the top of the climb to the base with a single 70 meter, so the climb is about 115' to 120' long.

The climb is cruiser, and I would recomme... more >>

Comments: As of January 2014 the route seems safe without a runout. Maybe a bolt was added? If you can find all the holds on the roof it also feels like... 5.7? I don't know. The jugs are huge and about 6" apart.

Comments: This rock's been climbed for generations now. The routes are so obvious and old that the FA's hardly matter, it's kind of communal at this point. That being said you might want to just delete your submitted routes with their names, rather than try and put your stamp on the rock.
