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.

Fish 'n Chips is the flake crack in the center of the picture.

Fish N' Chips 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  OR : Smith Rock : Shipwreck Wall
Even though the guidebook says this is a good route, I was skeptical. But the rock was clean, the moves were fun from the beginning, and the end was thrilling. Take a moment to look around while you are doing it - the position is fantastic. I ended up being really impressed. I think this is one of the most fun 5.10's I've been on at Smith, and a great way to warm up for the fun elevens and 12's on the Shipwreck Wall....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
