Perhaps the best legitimate climbing within close proximity of downtown Portland, the Broughton Bluffs sit on the eastern shore of the Sandy River near the mouth of the Columbia River Gorge. One of the area’s favorite local crags, Broughton provides a variety of challenges for nearly every skill set. Broughton Bluffs offer a little something for everybody on a series of 160-foot cliffs within the Lewis and Clark State Recreation Site. Broughton is good year-round but best in summer and fall; with everywhere else around here, it can be a little wet and slick during the rainy season. Difficulty ranges from 5.7 to 5.13.
