About Meadowview Cliffs and Boulders (Known as Meadowcamp to locals):

There is about 1/2 mile of cliffs about 30 to 50 ft tall running along the river. Many climbs have Glue-in rappel bolts on the top. All top roping. If you are in the area and you don't want to brave the crowds at Smith Rock then you can go here. Probably about 20 climbs from about 5.6-5.10.
Nearest town or city: Bend
Directions: HWY 97 goes right through Bend. If coming from the north turn right on Franklin st. From the south turn left. Franklin will take you to the Deschutes River; turn right over the bridge. About a mile from the river there is a Round-a-Bout at 14th st.; turn left. Go straight through two more Round-a-bouts; Go about 3-4 miles and turn on the dirt road before the golf course; 1 mile down the dirt road park on the left. The cliffs are north or down river; left facing the river. They start about 1/5 mile from the parking. There are trails to the top near the beginning.
Latitude, Longitude: 44.00075, -121.38322
Access Issues: Please keep a low profile and respect other users of the area: joggers, mtn. bikers, etc. Keep dogs under control to avoid conflicts with the many "dog walkers" that use the river trail. Chalk is currently banned here. The Meadow Picnic area is a day-use only so camping is not allowed but there is plenty of free camping on the surrounding national forest. Please respect fire bans in summer/fall and road closures in the winter (the road to this area is open year-round, but all secondary roads are closed from Dec. 1-March 31. Thanks!
