Description 

The Shipwreck wall is the prominent East face that lies perpendicular to the river on the East ship. It's home to a handful of decent and moderate single-pitch routes.

Also included in this area is the River Face which, as the name implies, is the face just down and around the corner from the Shipwreck wall facing the river.


Getting There 

From the bridge walk left along the main path around the dark Shiprock. The Shipwreck Wall is the prominent face on the East Ship outcrop.

One of the most aesthetic lines at smith. The only fitting description is, MEGA! Starts in a somewhat awkward corner before clearing the first roof on good holds. Rest up before the second roof and the technical crux, sequential pockety crimps to a decent rest below the third roof. Traverse using either face holds or underclinging the roof, whichever feels better to you and prepare yourself for the redpoint crux, the massive pump generated while cranking good holds to the chains. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
