After comparing these photos to specimens in my collection, I feel confident with an Antrodiaetus (Atypoides) gertschi determination. Legs 3-4 are about equal in size to legs 1-2, and the carapace slopes gently from back to front (instead of having a distinctive caput). The habitat is certainly consistent with A. gertschi (volcanic soils of Cascades Mtns).
