This guide is for Oregon climbers with busy lives who want to make the most of their time on the rock. Most approaches are short, drive time from urban centers is noted, and estimated climbing times range from a few minutes to a full day for these routes rated 5.0 to 5.10a. But-more important-these routes have been selected for quality of experience, rated on a three-star system.

There is something here for everyone, from basalt and sandstone crags to routes on volcanic rock and wilderness spots high in the Cascades. Weekend Rock Oregon points you to the best weekend destinations around the state, including Broughton's Bluff, Rocky Butte, and Carver Bridge Cliffs near Portland; Smith Rock, a world-class climbing destination; The Honeycombs and Acker Park in Umpqua National Forest; and Burnt River in southeast Oregon.
