      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I have talked to a guy who knew about this climbing area. I was wondering where it is located and what type of climbing is there. I believe it’s in western Oregon. Could somone post directions possibly?

 

Thanks,

Kip

A buddy took me there once. It's up out of Oakridge. Typical crappy oregon rock, and it gets no sun so it takes forever to dry out. Lots of veg. No bolts anywhere since it's wilderness.

Not sure how to contact him but Bill soule has put up many trad (and I mean no bolts even for anchors) routes there.

I have put up a handful of routes here. This place has a very wild feel and we would like to keep it that way. There is a rabid no bolt ethic (not even for anchors). If you bolt here IT WILL BE CHOPPED! As Jim said Bill Soule found this place and enjoys showing visitors the place as long as they respect it. Mike South, at backcountry gear in Eugene, has also put up routes there and will probably know as much as anyone about the place too. If you like adventure it is a great place with some serious climbs.

 

Bill would rather the info for this place not be sprayed over the internet so if you go there or are given info please respect this and keep it discreet.

i have climbed there a couple times and put up a few thin aid climbs. my thought is find out how to get there on your own, thats what i did. Look on a map, and whatever you do please dont thrash the place and definetely dont chip or bolt anything!!! Also try to use pre existing trees with slings already on them for rapping. And for how ever said the rock is crap, you must have been climbing in the wrong place. that crappy rock just needs a lil cleaning and its good to go.

I frequent the place and support texplorer's assertion that Bill does not want to see the place on the web due to the access repurcussions. Is there anyway this thread can be removed and/or edited for the sake of future access issues. It was ommitted from the new guides for a reason, if the moderator of this website stepped in they would be doing a lot of goodddd......

I enjoy adventure climbing and was told of this place by Erica and Mike South. they spoke highly of the adventurous atmosphere with no crowds. They said the rock was really good, but did need a bit of cleaning especially if you were looking to do a new line.
