Fall Rock Climbing In Oregon

Rock climbing in the fall in Oregon, on clear, cold, sunny days is about as good as it gets.

The following photos and the Ridgemont Video at the bottom are all filmed by Ben Leroy.

First, check out the color of this fall sky:

Blue Sky Columns

Second, here’s the “Third Column Face Variation”:

Finally, click here for a video of a quick top-rope lap on my favorite finger crack in Oregon.

If you’ve never climbed that crack, you should come do it. Crack climbing doesn’t get a whole lot better than that (I’d stack this one, short pitch against anything I’ve done in Yosemite – and my friend who guides in the Tetons says that he misses The Columns more than anything since he moved to Wyoming).
