The Dihedrals contain one of the highest concentrations of great sport climbing anywhere in North America. Home to big-name climbs like To Bolt Or Not To Be, Chain Reaction, and many others, this area can certainly be humbling. The Dihedrals have played an important part in Smith's history and have often been home to the area's (and world's) most difficult routes.
The Dihedrals lie on the front side of Smith Rock between Asterisk Pass and the Four Horsemen. Their clear profiles can be seen easily from the vantage point of the parking lot, and are directly accessable via the trails along the hillside.

Though classic & excellent, the route is a bit of a pain to climb, since it traverses so much. The route turns two aretes, which compounds rope drag and makes it impossible to clean the route while lowering. These factors have hampered th...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
