Description 

This West Side area has a classic arete (Split Image) and several other worthwhile routes. It has shade in the morning and sun in the afternoon. Made in the Shade (12c-sport) and the 1st pitch of Cling On (5.8-trad) stay in the shade all day long.


Getting There 

The most direct approach to the area is over Asterisk Pass and then veering right. Keep going along the trail next to the cliff. When you reach a 90 degree classic-looking arete (Split Image), you are in the center of the area . Alternative routes to the area are either over Misery Ridge and then go upriver (left) or go around the Southern Tip (downriver) and head up to Asterisk Pass and then to the Snake Rock area.

Alan Watts on Split Image.

Split Image 5.12c/d 7c 28 IX E6 6b  OR : Smith Rock : Snake Rock
An ultra classic arete with continuous thin technical moves. Originally climbed mostly on the right side, easier but still challenging starting moves on the left-center lead to a thin ledge. From here, the arete and tiny holds provide continuously difficult, technical moves up until just a little ways before the anchors. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
