Toothpick Wall is a clean and quiet area with about a dozen climbs. A trio of excellent cracks (Blueberry, Toothpick and Vertical Therapy) garner most of the attention. Very few climbs on the Toothpick Wall have fixed anchors though all are top-ropeable using adjacent trees and/or your own gear.

Getting There 

The most common way to access the Toothpick Wall is to build an anchor atop Blueberry Jam and rappel in. Alternately, you can come down the 'Emotional Rescue' scramble from the SE or drop down the cave descent from the NW. If neither of these approaches sound familiar you'll do well to just walk the base of the cliff from the far SE end (Silver Bullet Bluff area).

Blueberry Jam is a steep, clean crack on the left side of the Toothpick Wall. The traditional start begins to the right of the crack on easy terrain and traverses left on good edges. Small cams or RP's protect the traverse reasonably well. An alternate direct-start is bouldery and fun though much more challenging than anything else on the route (bumps the grade up to 5.10a). Once into the crack the climbing gets really fun. Relatively steep climbing with great jamming and frequent face holds...[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
