We drove to the overlook at the top of the butte and hiked down the trail that leads to The Columns. It was a great hike with awesome vistas of Eugene. Several climbers were practicing their technique on the rocks while we were there. We chose the pathway that leads up and to the right when hiking back up from The Columns. It’s a more strenuous route but gets you back to your car quicker.

Good place for a few climbs or to practice trad. Great place to get a feel for basalt columns before a trip to somewhere heavy in them.

Theres some fun little climbs and parking is like 10 feet away. The rock is a bit crumbly and you have to be careful of some super loose holds.

This is an incredible rock formation just about as close to downtown Eugene as you can get. Plenty of anchors at the top for redundant protection on most climbs. A lot of people also trad climb the cracks. It can get busy though, so you wont always be able to do the climb that you prefer right away but most folks are pretty nice about sharing the formation.

Great for climbing. They do have a board that has the info on level of difficulty but make sure to bring all your harnesses, rope and helmet. Some part of the rock is slippery and damp.

Cool local geological feature. Did not realize there was an outdoor climbing spot so close by. Will have to check it out when it dries up again.

This place was really cool. Unfortunately there were some interesting vagrants sleeping around the trail. If you go keep in mind you could encounter someone sleeping or camped out.
