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.
