Description

The Smorgasbord Area is one of E-Rock's 'hidden' areas that contains a number of fun, moderate single pitch climbs, and doesn't see much traffic. It's a good place to visit on those crowded weekends when the other walls are mobbed with people. It is located on the backside of the Main Dome between Center Wall and the Echo Canyon areas. All of the climbs here are trad routes that range from 5.3 to 5.10a with the majority checking in around 5.8. A couple have anchors, but most do not. Strawberry Jam (5.3) provides an easy way to the summit if you want to walk off the top at the end of the day.

Getting There

One of the reasons why the Smorgasbord Area isn't visited too often is because it's a little ways off the beaten path and it takes some work to get to. It is possible to reach the wall by following the main trail around the backside of the Main Dome until you are even with the wall, and then bushwhack up to the base. The easier route to the base of the wall is through Echo Canyon. From the base of Echo Canyon, hike the green climbers' trail to the Triple Cracks area. There is a narrow slot behind Grass Crack on the far left side of the area. Climb through the slot and shimmy to the top of a slab that deposits you at the base of Smorgasbord (5.6). The remaining climbs can be reached by following the base of the wall.
