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.

While not extremely pumpy it remains technically demanding to the chains.Start by suffering through thin 5.11 slab moves past the first three bolts of Moondance. No this is not the crux so try to hide the pain in your eyes as you make it past a series of small sharp edges. Next make a couple traverse moves to the fourth bolt. From here move into the roof, clip a long sling and get a good stemming rest. With some effort exit the roof o...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
