Description 

Just upstream from the Wildfire Wall lies this fantastic line of columns. The narrow approach (aka The Catwalk) is just above the river. The cracks here are remarkably good and would be worth a weekend trip unto themselves.

Getting There 

Follow the trail upstream from the Wildfire Wall along the narrow catwalk.

Crack-A-No-Go 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c PG13  OR : Smith Rock : ... : Catwalk Cliff
This thin seam just right of Cruel Sister probably gets TR'ed more than any route in the gorge. Although the copious amounts of chalk on this route make it less asthetic it is still an elegent line that makes for a worthy endeavor. The crux is more cryptic than difficult and finding the right pro can be dubious too....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
