(g) Morning Glory Wall Rock Climbing
Smith's most traveled rock.
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.
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.

A great pitch that often gets used as a warm up for the 5.13s to the right on the Churning Buttress. It sees a lot of traffic, but with good reason. Typical Smith Rock crimps and pockets abound.It's a fun route to jump on at the end of the day for one last burn on the way back to the car if nobody's on it.The start is 15-20ft. to the right of the tree at the base of the Morning Glory wall, just around the corner from the Zebra/5 Gallon Buckets area....[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!
