does anyone know of a rock gym on the east side of Portland? Looks like everything is downtown or Beaverton. Any help would be great.

thanks for the suggestion, but still know locations east of Macadam which is west of the Willamette river. Relocating from Phoenix at the wrong time of the year so hope to find something closer to Gresham.

Closest to Gresham would be Portland Rock Gym which is on Burnside and like 12th.

PRG, as herbaltee mentioned, is on the east side, though probably a good 20 or 30 minutes away from most parts of Gresham during traffic hours:

Although I've never been there, I know that Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham has a climbing wall. It's in the pool area, which means it's hot and loud at times, but it's relatively cheap, and you'd probably want to at least check it out due to it's location:

thanks for all the help. Checked out PRG today pretty nice. They have a nice bouldering area. Said you have to climb at 5.10 or better to lead. Looks like a lot of routes.
