hey all new to the area, state too for that matter. im in roseburg and looking for some close climbs and came across the callahans but i was wondering what type of climbing there is here. bottom or top set up? frictions? and what type of gear would be be recommended to take on a climb in the callahans, im sure there are different areas. but are there areas where you would just need a rope and a few beaners and belay device or do you need a ton of cams for all the climbs?

not sure how many beaners you need, but most all types of climbing are gonna require more than just a few beaners. and they prefer to be called mexican americans now.

You can find a guide for the area at While Away Books on Harvard on the other side of I-5 from the high school.

Quick draws are all you'll need this time of year until some of the rare cracks we do have dry out.

You also need to be aware that there are seasonal Peregrine closures at Acker, Honeycombs, Eagle, and Limpy until early to mid July.

You'll find a good selection of gear at Backcountrygear.com's store on 2nd street in Eugene.
