Climbing the Columns on Skinner Butte by 

The columns are a basalt rock cliff on the western slope of Skinner Butte in Eugene OR. The columns were exposed back in the day while the butte was quarried. Thankfully that stopped and the area was allowed to grow back in. They are only 45 ft tall but a very popular climbing spot since the early 1940’s. And no, none of the climbers is me! I’m safer behind the lens!

    I see climbers hundreds of feet up on our rock formations. There is no way I could do this stuff. A great collage and tribute to the climbers.

  • Me either Lori… but in awe of those that do!! Thanks for visiting and the comments!
