The Bypass is a climbing area also known as the Dump.  This rock climbing area is almost exclusively a sport climbing area with over a dozen sport routes.  The area is located in White Salmon and is only a few minutes from Hood River /Stevenson area.  The area is short and under 70 feet tall but the  routes are short and pumpy.

 The rock is basalt and is steep on most of the wall.  The outer flanks have a 5.6 and 5.7 respectively but the climbs in the center of the wall range from 5.9 many 5.10s and 5.11c and 5.12.  This is by no means a destination climbing area but rather a small local climbing spot.  Directions are not listed here due to some minor access concerns–that being said there has never been a problem climbing here.  If you need specific directions feel free to email us.
