Description 

The Morning Glory Wall is home to some of the best and most popular routes at Smith. Sunny, warm, and accessable routes range from the ever-popular 5 Gallon Buckets (5.8) to the crimpfests like Churning In the Wake and Taco Chips. This area is often the place to be seen at Smith, and the popular routes will almost always have a group under them. Expect to wait in line for the most popular selections on busy weekend days.

Virtually all of the routes here are well-protected by bomber bolts and are on clean, solid rock.


Getting There 

The Morning Glory Wall stretches from the Cocaine Gully on the right to the Peanut on the left. From the bridge, follow the trails along the hillside past the gullies.

5 Gallon Buckets 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c  OR : Smith Rock : Morning Glory Wall
The huge huecos of 5 Gallon Buckets are often the first piece of rock that a climber touches on his or her first trip to the park. The fun and consistent 5.8 climbing is straightforward and enjoyable as a warmup or a toprope. A Smith classic!This is the left-most route on the big huecoed section of the wall. There's one bolt that can't be seen from the ground (it's in one of the big huecos), so remember to bring a 'draw for it.Due to its central location and easy grade this is possibly the mo...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR

Okay, okay, okay...I thought it would be fun for people to have something to push for (goals are always good and having fun is even better). So why not keep track of our times up Zebra Zion, from base of climb and back to the base, with two or more partners...I guess if you want you could go solo, but always better to be safe! If you go as fast as you wanted you get to but yourself a beer and a doggy bone for me!
