Chouinard's Crack (1st Half Pitch of Peking) 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c  Oregon : Smith Rock : (u) Red Wall
Chouinard's Crack is one of the best splitters in the Park. There's not much more to say about it -expect really fun, straightforward fingers and thin hands crack climbing with solid gear. If you want to spoil it, finish off with the rest of Peking, but for a great outing, finish up on Moscow....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon

Would totally recommend wearing a helmet in this area. Or always when standing under a route. In 2 days I saw 2 separate rock fall incidents last weekene, 1 of which would have absolutely killed a woman and an man with his dog if not for missing by a few feet. All melon sized rock.
