WelcomeWelcome to Oregon! Not quite as sunny and granitic as its southerly neighbor, nor as glaciated and impressive as its northerly one, this state still holds its own must-visit destination: the world-famous Smith Rock.
The golden tuff is actually an exception to the otherwise overwhelming majority of basalt crags. Besides the lower gorge, the best crack climbing in the state is without a doubt Trout Creek. Metropolitan crags include Broughton Bluff and Carver, not to mention those on the Washington side. If you're looking for a big wall, Wolf Rock has what you're looking for. And any peak-bagger's journey would be incomplete without a slog up the south side of Mt. Hood.
There are numerous adventure crags scattered all over the state, from the secluded Rattlesnake in the southwest to the expansive Spring Mountain in the northeast. Get out there and check them out!
