BATTLESHIP EDGE


For most people the Battleship Edge is the starting point for exploring the west coast of Portland's huge supply of routes. It is an extremely friendly and inviting place. The gleaming white and grey-streaked faces and striking grooves are peppered with bolts. After the huge landslip of 2014 the old approach is no longer useable, and the crag base is not quite as grassy and friendly as it used to be. The routes remain unchanged though and offer the same quality especially in the mid grades.
