Description [Edit]

The Northwest side of the Smith Rock Group is home to some long forgotten relics from eras past and to some heavily traveled newer routes. The formation itself is impressive being one of Smith's larger walls but unfortunately the rock quality is not so stellar. Many new routes have gone up in this area, most notably Wherever I May Roam.

Getting There [Edit]

Go over Asterisk Pass and turn left, walk a couple hundred feet and you're there.

There is an additional route to climber right of Chalk Therapy. Bolts look pretty shinny and its not in the book so I assume its a new route?
8 bolts plus chains. short climb but fun.

i'd rate it a .9 maybe .9+ Apr 24, 2017
