View The Gorge from an all-together different vantage point!

The Columbia River Gorge is a canyon carved by the Columbia River, with cliffs reaching up more than 4,000 feet from the river floor. Many rock pillars, rock walls and small canyons offer rock climbers fantastic opportunities to scale sheer cliffs or boulder rock piles year-round. Broughton Bluff can be found outside Troutdale itself, near the Lewis & Clark State Recreation Site, with multiple climbing routes for persons of all abilities. Beacon Rock may be the most recognizable feature in The Gorge and the second-largest monolith in the world. Climbers test themselves on the technically-demanding 44-foot facing in Beacon Rock State Park.
