Description 

ALL 2ND PITCH ROUTES ARE CLOSED ON PICNIC LUNCH WALL UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO FALCONS. - 2/8/16

The 700ft. tall Picnic Lunch Wall strikes a commanding pose over the Crooked River as one descends the trail down from the parking lot. The Picnic Lunch Wall is flanked by the Red Wall on the right and the Shiprock on the left.

Despite its height and presence, the rock quality is generally sub-par compared to other areas. Nonetheless, there are some quality climbs to be found. There are a handful of worthy multipitch routes although many are loose fright-fests.

Getting There 

Walk up the staircase at the end of the bridge. Well-maintained trails provide easy access to the wall.

Descend via the Misery Ridge trail.

Five Easy Pieces 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  Oregon : Smith Rock : (a) Picnic Lunch Wall
Five Easy Pieces is a worthwhile adventure on mostly good rock. With four pitches at 5.12 or harder, it's no gimme, but is generally well protected and is characterized by excellent moves on mostly impeccable rock. It's worth noting that this route has a lot of drilled holds, (like many routes at Smith) but is super fun to climb anyway.Pitch 1: 13 bolts. Climb the heavily chalked and popular sport pitch. Instead of stopping where the chalk ends, climb past anchor onto a friable slab and take ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
