One of Portland's finest mid-grade venues that has a number of fantastic wall climbs. The rock is generally excellent on the classic lines and the climbing sustained. The setting is stunning, and the base of the cliff is lined with good flat ledges - ideal for soaking up some sunshine between climbs.
