Trout Creek Climbing

by Jeff Wenger

Welcome to Trout Creek, Oregon's answer to desert crack climbing. Trout Creek is not a large area but the concentration of high quality natural lines is immense and the setting alone is well worth the hike. Positioned high above the Deschutes River the crag provides a sweeping panorama of the Central Oregon landscape and gorge framed viewing Mt. Jefferson. The highest percentage of classics come in at 5.10 and above but the spaces between the lower angle columns produce many quality 5.7-5.9 routes. With 130 routes to choose from, there's plenty to suit every crack fan's strength or weakness. The Northern End, Main, Castle & Cool Walls are included in this guidebook.
