Sometimes wet, but it is worth waiting for.

A hard section just below the break provides the crux. Good climbing if a little dusty.

Excellent fun and fairly straightforward to onsight.

Tricky getting over the break as well. Beware of the overflow pipe above if it starts to rain - you have 10 minutes before Niagara comes to Portland (and we're not talking spring water either).

Bloody desperate crux and clip for the short. Much harder than Wish the Impossible, Turn to Stone etc. 6b move for midgets. 7a?

Elegant, technical climbing but, in contrast to Rob Kinsey above, I think this route is hard on-sight and much easier once you know where the holds are and which way to go to reach the half-height break.

A harder on-sight than Wish the Impossible. 7a for average height.
