Description 

This is what the Lower Gorge is all about. A quick glance to your left tells the whole story: look at all those stars! Mega-classics like Wildfire (5.10b), On The Road (5.11a), Pure Palm (5.11a), and others are not to be missed. No trip to Smith is truly complete without a visit here.

Getting There 

Continue walking past the small Parched Cat cliff.

Crime Wave 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c PG13  OR : Smith Rock : ... : Wildfire Wall
Once past the the initial 10', this excellent route is a technical face climb up the tips crack with gear for protection. I found crux moves 20' - 30' high and in the final 15'.

I used BD #2 and #3 microstoppers to sew up the seam, hence the PG13 rating....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
