Hey – Thanks for mentioning my blog, Carver Bouldering. I have been granted permission from the landowner to publish a full guide to the Carver Boulders and it should be available by the end of July The guidebook has just over problems and probably only half of them have been lost to the moss. I’m from Lexington, NC originally, so I’m going to be giving your posts some thorough reviewing before I craver home again for a visit.
Thanks for the post! I’m stoked about the guidebook release I always run by Carver while I’m out there every Christmas and try to tick off anything that isn’t soaked, it’ll be nice to have a better guide to the place to find the hidden gems: Keep up the good work and stewardship!
If you can’t send your body This website is intended to inform the reader of local spots in SC, Western NC and Northeast GA, as well as a blog of my experiences climbing at these great spots.
I hope everyone learns of a new place to climb or is inspired to climb somewhere close to them. If you have any comments, please send me an e-mail.
Our yearly voyage out to the Northwest is always a nice time to sit back, relax and enjoy family and different amenities that you just cant find back home. There are so many breweries in Portland to enjoy and the cuisine is absolutely incredible! Last night we had some of the best tacos in the world at Porque No and chased it with a great local Amnesia brew If you know anything about the Northwest, then you know that winter is NOT the season to try to boulder outside I’ve visited the Carver boulders at the Carver cliffs on the side of the Clackamus River before, but the conditions yesterday were so wet and the rocks were seeping from under the thick patches of ferns and mosses that almost nothing was dry enough to climb.
That’s one of the biggest differences between bouldering back home and here near Portland Similar to Little Rock City, Carver has gone through some changes over the years and being on private property creates a unique situation that requires a unique management.
Over the past year, the crag was closed due to unruly climbers and then reopened with the continuing help of the Carver Climbing Club. There is also a small website that post up info about the boulderingclick on over and check out the saga that has unfolded. I was lucky enough to find a copy of the old out-of-print bouldering guide to Portland and the Columbia River Gorge at Powells Bookstore a couple of years ago After walking around the boulders trying to find anything dry enough to climb, I found myself at the base of the cliff on a boulder called the Standard Overhang, seen in the photo above.
I climbed the stand start to the Standard Overhang route which went at a V1 and was a pretty fun route. I was shocked I found anything to climb and was stoked to pull hard enough to send a wet and slippery V3! From here I roamed around looking for anything else that was dry and finally came upon a boulder seen above and is labelled as the Warm Up boulder on the new map.
Message the mods to get your subreddit added here!
After a few tries, I finally sent the route and felt it was right around a V2. Super fun problems, even though you had to deal with some slippery moss at the top!
After this, I roamed around checking out routes in the guide for future sessions, since I couldnt find anything else that was dry. After visiting the NW a few times, I’m so grateful for what we have back in the Southeast Carver is Portlands local boulder crag, but couldnt hold a candle to even our worse boulderfields back home.
I cant tell you how thankful I am to live in such a kick ass place in the US for bouldering!!! Today is another typical Portland day with rain in the forecast It looks like the Columbia River Gorge is getting some snow over the next week, so Beacon Rock and any of the other boulder areas within an hour and a half are out of the question for this trip.
It would be nice to make it to Smith Rock, but we’d have to drive over the snowed in Cascades in order to do that No matter, I’m planning on hitting Portland Rock Gym and The Circuit too in the next couple of days to try to get my send on! I hope everyone is out getting on some rock somewhere and appreciates how nice it is to have what we have in the Southeast!
