Description

The Dihedrals contain one of the highest concentrations of great sport climbing anywhere in North America. Home to big-name climbs like To Bolt Or Not To Be, Chain Reaction, and many others, this area can certainly be humbling. The Dihedrals have played an important part in Smith's history and have often been home to the area's (and world's) most difficult routes.

The walls appear almost impossibly sheer, and were it not for the white-on-brown contrast of chalk marks they'd look virtually featureless from below. The climbs here are bold but well-bolted and any loose rock has fallen off long ago on the popular climbs.

Getting There

The Dihedrals lie on the front side of Smith Rock between Asterisk Pass and the Four Horsemen. Their clear profiles can be seen easily from the vantage point of the parking lot, and are directly accessable via the trails along the hillside.
