Kip bouldering below the overhang

Description 

This is a great summer spot with overhanging cliffs and bouldering right next to, and over the river.
One main route currently known, the Dean Fry Memorial Route. There are two other lines that appear to have two bolts at the start, but unknown where they go, or if they are abandoned projects.
This could be a good cliff for hard summer climbing, if someone wanted to develop more sport lines.
There is also a good looking overhanging finger crack that starts about 10'-12' off the ground and goes to about 40' tall. It looks hard and sustained, and clean enough that I'm pretty sure someone has at least tried it.
If anyone knows any info on the lines here, or boulder problems, please add them or contact me!

Getting There 

Follow Highway 20 from Sweet Home for several miles until you see a sign for Canyon Creek. There is a trail on the north side by a pullout, going down to the river and the main cliff. Main cliff is on the up stream side, on the south side of the wall. Look for a large overhang capped with a roof.
