As a newly discovered bouldering crag across the river from Portland, this area consists of 5 different buttes or boulder fields that work their way up to Larch Mountain. There are a lot of undeveloped problems on this ridge line and an unlimited potential for small to high ball routes. The rock here is relatively clean, very solid, and to date, range from VB to V7.
This area is located on Washington State Trust Land and part of the Jones Creek area, which is known for ATV usage. This area does require a Washington Discover Pass and they will ticket you, even though you are miles out into dusty back roads. Expect to encounter a lot of ATVs, motorcycles, shooting ranges and people drinking booze.
Directions: Because of various road closures, we suggest taking this route from Camas, WA. If you don’t have an AWD vehicle, then park at the pull off area before the closed gate. Walk up the middle road for about 10 minutes to reach a majority of the boulder fields.
