Description 

The 700ft. tall Picnic Lunch Wall strikes a commanding pose over the Crooked River as one descends the trail down from the parking lot. The Picnic Lunch Wall is flanked by the Red Wall on the right and the Shiprock on the left.

Despite its height and presence, the rock quality is generally sub-par compared to other areas. Nonetheless, there are some quality climbs to be found. There are a handful of worthy multipitch routes although many are loose fright-fests.


Getting There 

Walk up the staircase at the end of the bridge. Well-maintained trails provide easy access to the wall.

Descend via the Misery Ridge trail.

Oregon's first big wall now offers great free-climbing to the top of Smith Rock's most intimidating wall. Expect a first rate soft-rock adventure that delivers 5 distinct pitches of mostly solid rock and protection. Hard cranking, mega-exposure, and surprisingly classic climbing will be encountered while scaling this Cathedral of mud. The ability to confidently climb over questionable gear is a pre-requisite. Pitch 1: The crux comes 12ft off the ground with an arguably un-protectable boulder pro...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
