Climb Rooster Rock at Rooster Rock State Park in the Columbia River Gorge for a short adventure and phenomenal views!
Head to Rooster Rock State Park off exit 25 on I-84 E in the Columbia River Gorge. Park at the west end of the park. There are multiple paths at the west end of the park heading south to I-84. If you go too far west, you will hit water. Pick one of these paths which lead to the edge of the freeway and follow the freeway west for 1/8 of a mile until you encounter a trail leading into the woods. Follow this short trail to the base of Rooster Rock.
There is a short third to fourth class step which lead to a bolt in the rock which serves as the belay point. From here, there is one pitch of very low fifth class climbing to the summit with adequate gear placements. At the summit, there are chains to rappel off of. Two 60 m ropes are needed to rappel.
- 2 60 m ropes
- Small rack
- ATC/rappel device
