Description 

This is the last major buttress at the west end of the cliffband before you reach Gold Gully. (a broad, mellow 3rd class weakness to the top) Gold, the namesake route, is the striking clean line on the left end of the wall. To date, there are four routes here with room for a handful more. All of them are classic. The wall here is a hair over 60m.

~20m climber's left of the Elements of Style area, the trees open and there's a large talus slope. The climbs are located here.

(it's worth rapping this with a small brush/nut tool to check that it's clean) Funk up the flare to a perfect ledge below a beautiful zebra-striped corner. You could easily link through, but to my knowledge, no one has as of yet. After physical lieba...[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
