The central section of Battleship Edge is one of the most popular areas on Portland, with a good supply of technical face and groove pitches. This is a great place to get a lot of mileage in if the grade range is right for you.

White hot fingery climbing on tiny holds. Steel fingers and good conditions are a must.

Wurlitzer Jukebox
A good pitch that features a hard start and a stopper finish. It gets a little close to Evening Falls in its mid reaches.
