Description 

Great West side crag, cool on summer mornings in the shade.
Good collection of trad and sport climbs from one to three pitches long.


Getting There 

There are 3 options: Hike up and over the Misery Ridge trail, scramble over Asterisk Pass, or slog up one of the gullies and then down the trail that starts up by the diving board near the Monkey.

Screaming Yellow Zonkers 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  OR : Smith Rock : Mesa Verde Wall
A very interesting route. It wanders a bit, has some funky old hardware and a lot of variation.Start with the same first bolt as Moons of Pluto (use a long sling on the 1st bolt) and then move left. Zig zag your way up the face to a final steep move below the anchor. Careful lowering off....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
