If you have the time and the inclination for a steep but short scramble, Mount Beachie's East Ridge provides a lot more entertainment and visual pleasure than the rather bland area at Mount Beachie's highest point. You'll encounter rugged volcanic crags, formations known to rock climbers as The Wall and Phone Booth Rock, and a natural arch that offers a window down the Battle Ax Creek valley. From the windy break between the arch and pillar-like Phone Booth Rock, you can gaze down sheer cliffs across to Battle Ax and Elk Lake as well as south to Olallie Butte, Mount Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, Mount Washington and the Three Sisters.
