The big hemicylinder hosting the 7th to 10th bolt ...


Walking in, upper north comb will be the first wall you encounter. Literally a few steps off the trail, a steep wall covered in pockets might have some bouldering potential if the moss at the upper lip were removed.

Getting There 

The obvious terraces lead to routes 1 and 2; The very next switchback on the trail leads down to routes 3-6 (Orton guide 1-4).

Further down Manzanita ridge, the next right side fork leads down to route 7-10 in an unmistakable hemicylinder (a pair of tree trunks on either side of the trail look like a gateway; walk down a grassy hillside until reentering the forest).

Start on jugs for 2 clips (Evidently a new 1st bolt has been added since Orton described a 20' runout to the 1st clip). Take on a slightly exciting runout on easy (but dirty) terrain to the 3rd before sportier bolting takes over. After the last bolt, go around the buckets to the anchor atop the dome.One may find oneself advantaged by bringing a sling clip. A 60 will barely reach the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
