The Rope de Dope Block is a solitary cube approximately 40ft. high that sits at the bottom of the hillside across the river from the main frontside climbing at Smith.
Take the main trail down from the parking lot, but before crossing the bridge over the river, find the trail leading to the left. Walk a few hundred yards to the block. A convenient trail also leads directly from the camping area to the Rope de Dope block.
