About Black Crag(OS):

One of the best crags in the valley for the Extreme leader. Of the 50 or so routes, over half are good Extremes. There is also a good selection of VS and HVS routes and the classic Severe, Troutdale Pinnacle, at 350 feet long. The routes are all at least 300 feet long and offer adequate protection. Northwest facing and better in the afternoon.
