Long/Lat: -122.608664, 42.162224

Unique Features And Strengths:

Emigrant Lake offers sunny single pitch cragging up sandstone cliffs overlooking the reservoir.

Description:

With an unobstructed SSW aspect and a short approach, the 30ft to 80ft cliffs at Emigrant Lake offer easy, year-round climbing. The cliff band is located within the county park recreation area featuring overnight camping and a water park. Most routes are bolted for lead climbing, with only a handful requiring trad gear. The top anchors are bolted, and with an easy scramble to the top of the cliff, most routes are easily top-roped. Note that Aqua Wall is seasonally under water as the reservoir level fluctuates. Watch out for poison oak!

Access Issues:

Day use fee is $4 (as of 2013). No day use is allowed after sunset, including climbing.

Approach:

The cliff band is located at the north end of the reservoir. Follow driving directions to Emigrant Lake County Park. Once inside the park, cross the bridge over the spillway and park at the trailhead at the far end of the RV park. A 10 minute walk down the trail brings you to the cliff band. When the water is low, you can also just walk along the beach, which may lessen your exposure to poison oak along the trail.

Where To Stay:

RV camping is available within the park year-round. Tent camping is only available during the summer months. Check the county park webpage for specific dates and fees: http://www.co.jackson.or.us/page.asp?navid=3555

History:

The reservoir was constructed in 1924 and expanded in 1960. The cliff saw active development during the early 1990s by a small cadre of local climbers and was for a while home of the hardest sport climb in southern Oregon.

1.21.4. Greensprings 39 routes in Crag

Summary:
Trad, Sport and other styles

Long/Lat: -122.488995, 42.128001

Unique Features And Strengths:

Short approach to varied climbing on columnar basalt

Description:

Over thirty routes of single-pitch sport and trad climbing can be found along the basalt columns at Greensprings Butte. The southwest aspect means cool climbing in the morning.

Access Issues:

Greensprings is on private property, so access depends on good relations with the landowners. As always, practice a "leave no trace" ethic. Keep noise levels down. Pick up any trash you see. In particular, respect the owners' privacy by not wandering back beyond the top of the lower cliff band.

Approach:
  • From the north, take I-5 exit 14 and follow OR-66 E for 14.2 miles to Tyler Creek Rd.

  • From the south, take I-5 exit 6 and follow OR-273 N for 6.6 miles. Turn right on OR-66 E and drive 9.0 miles to Tyler Creek Rd.

Turn right on Tyler Creek Rd. Drive 1/4 mile and park in the large pullout on the right side of the road. Look for the climbers' trail across the road.

5-10 mins of steep hiking brings you to a fork where, predictably, left leads to the left section (look for the Marge column) and right leads to the right section. Watch for occasional poison oak.

Where To Stay:

Camping (and additional climbing) can be found at Emigrant Lake campground.
