Mary's Peak contains 3 different areas/styles of climbing. About halfway up the road to the top, there is the small Owl Slab, with a handful of Sport and TR routes, and is the most popular of the Mary's Peak climbing areas, due to it closeness to Corvallis.
Near the top, scattered around are boulders, some decent sized, quite a few smaller ones. They are a bit hidden, and can be difficult to find sometimes. They are fairly good quality though.
Also scattered around near the top are 5 pillars, each with 1-3 routes on them, ranging from 5.6-5.10. These pillars are somewhat hard to find. If you know any more about them, please post them in the right areas. Basic directions and maps are posted in each area, as well as below this text. Refer to them for directions, and be prepared to do a little exploring to find the pillars and boulders.
ADMIN NOTE: I organized and sorted the pictures, maps and areas into their respective types of climbing. When adding new routes/lines/pictures, please try to upload them into the correct area! Thanks!

Getting There 

Hwy 20 to 34 after Philomath. Take a right on Mary's peak road for a few miles until you see a slanted rock on the left side of the road, this is Owl Slab. Enter the trees on the left side of the rock to find a faint trial to the top.
The other areas are on the top, near the main parking. Check the area for directions (if available).
