Crag features

Smith Rock is Oregon’'s premier rock climbing destination, and one of the best sport climbing areas in the United States. This world-renowned sport climbing mecca has more than once been at the focal point of the climbing world. Extensive development took place in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s by locals and international climbers alike, who put up scores of classic climbs on the tuff and basalt cliffs; development continues to this day with new moderates and cutting-edge routes going up each year. Ranging from classic beginner routes to hardcore testpieces on a wide variety of rock, there is truly something here for everyone. Although best known for its sport climbing traditional climbers can find plenty to be excited about here as well.

Rock type: Volcanic Lots of sport/ trad routes all along the whole rock area, very well laid out, geared for climbers, made for climbers, you would certainly believe it if you see it! Multi pitch, single pitch, you name it, it has it. The grades as high or low as you want them. US grades are old skool compared to Canada, e.g. compared to Squamish at least, the same grade 5.8 is at least 1-2 grades harder in the U.S. Just bear that in mind. I was told this by others I climb with at Squamish who also climb in the U.S, and I found it to be true when I climbed there.
