Great West side crag, cool on summer mornings in the shade.
Good collection of trad and sport climbs from one to three pitches long.

There are 3 options: Hike up and over the Misery Ridge trail, scramble over Asterisk Pass, or slog up one of the gullies and then down the trail that starts up by the diving board near the Monkey.

Reason To Be 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  OR : Smith Rock : Mesa Verde Wall
Spicy.Climb the arete to the right of Tale of Two Shitties using the arete and crimps. The climbing and rock are excellent, the bolts are a bit spaced making it a lil' scary. Bolts anywhere other than where they are would be extremely hard to clip. Perhaps a bit hard for the grade (aren't all 10.d's at Smith?)...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
