Squaw Creek

About 4 miles south of Sisters, the peaceful Squaw Creek cuts a swath of basalt in half creating the Squaw Creek Boulders. There isn't a concentrated amount of problems here; maybe a dozen quality lines. A couple warmups, then the business!  Couple obvious v>8 problems should keep me busy for quick afterwork sessions.

The approach to the boulders

Main area

The rock here consists of blocky ledges, and rounded slopers. Due to the creek, the rock has a polished texture and very little amount of crimping. A nice respite from ALL the other climbing around here.

The 420problem

Another angle. Easily the best line here, tho not the prettiest. Perfect 4 move power bldr problem.

And a quick clip of an unknown problem i did. I called it "medicine man", though its definitely been done before. No idea as to difficulty.
