Very unique! Looks like a fun climb. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for nice words and good vote. It's one of these "hidden" Oregon treasures that's not really described as a climbing objective in any currently published book....that's what makes it fun and worthwhile IMHO :) Nice home page by the way!
Nice page so far! I must have been real cold - Shirley doesn't wear her trademark smile! Love the picture of you posing with all the equipment. Looks like you want to deter SPers from climbing the pillar. Never do this or you'll find yourself lugging all this metalware!
Great page Radek--yet again. Looks like fun route with great views and exposure!
Thank you very much!
It was actually after our trip there last year that climbing that thing has been "dancing" around in my head. This is a nice fun, adventure type climb (as in not the greatest rock, much of the climbing is aid & cheat stick if you got one but still a cool summit :)
Hey, neat page. Why do I always think of Stein Erickson (the skier) when I hear the name "Steins Pillar"? Weird. Glad to see you put up another cool Oregon page.
Thanks for stopping by and the kind comments Dean!
Acc. to the palque at the overlook, the thing was named after some guy named StEEn from the 1800's. But someone misspelled his last name and it stuck.....sorry, I'll be more specific (and will add that in) after I go thru. the photo of that plaque :)
Very nice page and beautiful mountain!!
THank you for the good vote Bor.
Thanks for the good vote Alan.
Hey, I remember our hike in there a year or two ago. Wondered if this one would be on your list soon. Appears it was.
The one I think would still be neat from this hike are the Twin Pillars. Wonder if that bolted route was ever finished on that one?
Yeah, it's been in my head (the climb) since that day we passed by the overlook. This TR on cascade climbers I found a month or so ago finally pushed me over the edge :)
I'll add some more photos later where you see the Twin Pillars from Steins......these things are indeed sweet looking. Love these hidden little gems in Oregon.
Also, that Rabbit Ears that Mark and Natasha did looks pretty cool as well.........lots of stuff to climb, now only if the weather and the freaking job would cooperate!!
Should be called the Beer Stein. Fantastic piece of rock.
Thank you for stopping by and the good vote. Yeah, it's definitely a cool looking spire. Just sort of rises there out of these rolling foothills. Been wanting to climb it for over a year now. Pretty poor rock, not especially aesthetic climbing but a cool summit nevertheless :)
Looks like a really cool pillar. Great page.
Thank you for stopping by and the good vote.
It is a pretty cool formation in the middle of "nowhere" :)
Very very cool place! NIce job on this page and have a good one!
Thank you for the good vote and the kind words.
Reminds me a little of The Gunsight in WV before it fell over.
