Nice Menagerie photos.
What is the rock in the lower right photo?
That's not the bridge is it?

Here is a link to a short slideshow of this spring on Old Man Rock.

FYI for anyone interested in the Williamson Cliffs.
The Access Fund has been working with the FS to improve climber access to the cliffs. Last week we met with an AF trail crew representative and the FS and looked at options for climber access along the base of the 6 walls. So far discussions seem to be going well and we hope to have an Adopt A Crag trail day sometime next spring. This will be a big project and we'll need all the help we can get.

If anyone with a drill is intersted. Harold and I will be sinking bolts into the SE side of Acker Rock this Sunday. We have the Lookout rented Sunday night. FS has supplied the bolts. We will be rappelling and counting a rare buckwheat. Let me know if you are interested. Beers on me.

November 29, 2013. Finding the sun at McKinley Rock. A perfect day in the sun.

Ray Williams leading Pitch_1 (5.10a) of "Big Balls in Cowtown".

Logan Wetherell topping out after leading the right variation to Pitch_2 (5.10c).

After we all took turns backing off Logan finally took the lead on the third pitch (5.10c) of "Big Balls in Cowtown".

Looks like this thread has been dormant for a while. Maybe some folks will come back out of the woodwork and get us some stoke for the end of this cold snap. I'm interested if anyone knows anything about...

1. "Gothic Rock" north of Sisters at the end of Green Ridge.
2. If you head up the White Water River from its confluence with the Metolius it looks like there are some big south facing cliffs above the drainage at around 5k' that might be similar to Cougar Crag near Bend. Anyone been there? Rock quality? Routes?
3. West Ridge of the Strawberries and the range west of that above John Day both have some domes/spires. visible from the road. Anyone know?
4. Table Rocks near Medford got any routes?

Thanks folks!

Agreed, I'd love to see that.

1) Here's my TR on Gothic Rock from a couple of summers ago:

In tribute to the master of choss that started this thread, who we lost so young (Corvallisclimb):

Some more pinnacles from the land-o-boners in SE Oregon (spring 2016):























For all the phallic pics, I like to include this for balance, which I entitle "The Crystal Snatch"


The crystal snatch is a void within a very large geode welded into this wall:
