A peaceful crag that overlooks the town of Rhododendron and sees little traffic. Has thirty or so good routes to do and several classics.

Getting There 

Highway 26 to Road 27. Take Road 27 all the way up the hill until it switches back and you see an old, unmaintained, dead-end road on your left. Park here and descend the road to a trail starting at the end of the road. Follow it as it goes to the bluff and then cuts right and works its way down the cliff. You will pass the first wall (has Pigs Knuckles 11b/c, Pigs Nipples 11a, Forbidden Zone 10a, and Tibbet's Crack 12a.)
If you continue following the trail, you will end up at the main cliff.

Locals called this crag "The Swine" prior to it being published in a guidebook. Good little mount hood crag.

Some great routes here but def needs some spring cleaning. Bring a folding saw if going in, a boulder rolled down left of the main crag and brought down some small trees with it.
