Just got back from 3 days climbing at Trout Creek, near Madras Or. Craig and Adrian talked me into making a run on thier favorite place to rock climb. I had never seen the place and I was just floored by the fun potential there for someone who enjoys a good jam crack

…….The only way you can really understand is by going there…
So many times when I have done shorter , yet really awesome crack climbs, I find myself wishing the crack was much longer. I was wishing for Trout Creek. Few will be disappointed with any of its 100+ most splitter established climbs.
Overall I ended up on 8 routes, 2 at 5.11 and a couple of 10+’s the rest where 9’s and 10’s used mostly as warm-up (though Amazing nonetheless.)
Then there is the setting.
The Trout Creek climbing community is so chill too and reasonably helpful when it comes to loaning that cam or 2 you need for the big lead.
Thanks to Craig and Adrian for dragging me here, and Pro Mountain Sports for the many cams we needed.
Add it to your list, Wayne
