Description 

The Red Wall has some of Smith's best multipitch moderates as well as a few classic tuft crimpfests. It is east facing and gets morning sun. The rock quality is generally good for Smith.


Getting There 

To approach cross the bridge and follow the trail up and right (north) until you get to the reddish colored rock. Allow 30 minutes from the car.

Super Slab 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  OR : Smith Rock : Red Wall
One of the finest 5.6's you'll ever do. The climbing is fantastic and the position is amazing.

Would totally recommend wearing a helmet in this area. Or always when standing under a route. In 2 days I saw 2 separate rock fall incidents last weekene, 1 of which would have absolutely killed a woman and an man with his dog if not for missing by a few feet. All melon sized rock.
