I have a thing for remote Oregon pinnacles I guess. Getting to this rock was a challenge. We went down Castle Rock road only to be turned around by a random rancher digging out the cattle guard. Went way back around to the west side where we found a jeep track. After driving up the "road" a bit we made a direct bee-line bushwack (2 miles) up the west-side eventually gaining the ridge. From there we took the standard route: scramble, climb, traverse, climb. We left the rope in the car and did the two low 5th class pitches free-solo. The rock (by Oregon standards) was pretty good - just take your time.

interesting scramble with splattski. I was glad he brought a rope for the part of the descent. This peak is quite prominent when driving east out of Burns

For me, second times the charm after the first attempt getting washed out by the clay on a drizzly day.
Today was spectacular and sunny.

I tried to go up here with a "friend" he was all, "its the desert what can happen?" "I got a 4 wheel drive don't worry..."
For the record 4 wheel drives don't drive in clay during freak rain storms... Oh and sticks don't help clay rodes.
