This underated climb is a fine outing that can be done as two pitches or as one long pitch with a 60m rope. The crux comes where you expect on the brilliant 2nd pitch dihedral.Pitch 1: Begin to the right of Ride the Lightning in a left facing dihedral up to the base of the book.Pitch 2: Use stemming, palming, fingerstacks to make your way up the perfect corner. You'll be wishing there was more. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Oregon

Would totally recommend wearing a helmet in this area. Or always when standing under a route. In 2 days I saw 2 separate rock fall incidents last weekene, 1 of which would have absolutely killed a woman and an man with his dog if not for missing by a few feet. All melon sized rock.
