Description 

This is a massive chunk of rock South of Asterisk Pass. One of the tallest portions of rock in the park, it host a fine collection of old school and modern multi-pitch climbs. There has been a fair amount of route development here in the past several years. The crag is logically broken into several different sections, from the east side from Asterisk Pass to around the corner to the west side at the base of opposite side of Asterisk Pass.

Getting There 

Depends greatly on what you want to climb.

South Park 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  Oregon : Smith Rock : ... : (5) Southern Tip
Great arete climb away from the hordes. Shares the same start as Wave of Bliss but stays on the arete.The first bolt is about 15' up the arete followed by another bolt, then a piton.
