Technical rock climbing in Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is only allowed on Pilot Rock. The south face of Pilot Rock provides some of the best traditional technical climbing in southwestern Oregon. There are seven routes on Pilot Rock, and four of them have conservatively placed fixed anchors.

New fixed anchors cannot be placed without prior BLM authorization.
