I ran a kickstarter that was a roaring success (thanks for the amazing support and also the nice words privately messaged and emailed from so many). I made some of the requested changes regarding areas under development, had fun talking about it on the Becoming Human podcast, shipped copies to all the backers and now the book (drum roll) is available to all while stocks last, so if you fancy checking an utter ton of moderate friendly info on sport crags here, near here, and worth taking a trip to over there, well snag your copy via… https://letsrockwa.wordpress.com/ GPS for parking, camping, and the crag. Beta, grades, and bolt counts. Big friendly pictures from the base of climbs. Advice on areas that are crumbly or hazardous, those with access problems and those that are easy to find but are still under development and should be avoided for now. Magazine sized and spiral bound for ease of use at the crag and also so you can have it rebound into smaller chapters if you fancy With some areas of Washington being a four+ hour drive away, well Oregon and Squamish and Idaho are the same driving distance, so I chucked those in, and well, Vegas, Utah and California are just a quick plane hop away, so why not. And well, there were some other spots that we visited that were worth covering just because they were quite splendid. Here's the chapter guides so you know what's covered...
Hi there, My name is Gobind, I'm 22 years old, and I've been climbing for a little under a year. I currently climb around 5.9-5.10 in the gym and have lead 5.5 outdoors. I'm looking for a partner who I could climb with maybe a few times a week at Crux Rock Gym in Eugene OR (or get on some real rock when the weather is nice at The Columns, Flagstone, or Smith). My main goal currently is to gain more experience leading (and falling on lead). I also would like to get into trad climbing, but only have sport climbing equipment at the moment. If you're looking for a climbing partner who will actually come through and not bail then look no further. I hope to see some of you out there at the crag in the future! Best, Gobind
Oregon Washington Columbia River Gorge Cliff Walls?!?!
boaz posted a topic in Climber's BoardI am sure many of you have driven down the Columbia River Gorge either on I84 or on HWY 14 and thought about climbing all the cliffs that line the river... I am wondering if anyone has climbed any or if there is info out there for why no one has yet. I know there is some climbing around The Dalles and horsethief butte. But i am talking about all the other cliffs that run from Arlington to Hood River. I imagine that being so close to the highway is a safety concern. Both for falling rocks and driver onlooking. There are plenty of places that are off the highway too though. Is that all that's stopping us? Is it protected land? Owned by who? Outside of just going and seeing who stops me and says whatever does anyone have some beta or input?

ROBBIE2289 posted a topic in Climber's BoardI have a full year membership to the Portland Rock Gym in off of NE 12th Ave. I bought it right at the beginning of September, so I’m prorating it to be of cost as of now. It was originally $814, so you’re getting the rest of the year at an absolute steal. This is definitely something to consider if you want to save the cost of a membership, while still getting all of the full benefits.I am selling it for $600.I AM NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE GYM ITSELF. I AM TRYING TO SELL MY OWN INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIP.EMAIL ME AT email@example.com IF INTERESTED
Mt Washington South East Ridge
winstonmueller posted a topic in Oregon CascadesIs anyone on this site familiar with an old route on the southeast ridge of Mt. Washington starting off with a 50-60ft slab with excellent cracks, and continuing on with some old petons? I feel like someone may have mentioned to me that it was in an old climbing guide, but I cannot recall. If anyone has information on it that would be awesome!
