Smith Rock, not to be confused with another Smith Rock in the North Wonderland, is home to a single problem, the Kurt Smith Problem (V3), but fortunately much more quality bouldering is nearby.

Getting There 

This small wall with it's distinctive twin black streaks is located just left of the Big Moe Wall. Approach from the parking area passing the Arete Boulders and the aforementioned Big Moe Wall. The walk from the car is less than 5 minutes and flat.
