Smith Rock, Oregon for Rock Climbing

I drove out to Smith Rock for a weekend climbing get away. Smith Rock State Park has a climbers bivouac which is great to use. I got there early to make sure myself and my climbing partner could get a spot. Smith Rock is one of the sport climbing meccas in the world! It is filled with all different grades of routes from beginners to the most skilled and seasoned vets. It is easy to find something on the large walls that will fit your climbing level. I went on a short hike in the morning when I woke up to make sure the guide book had the routes that we wanted to climb set out with the information I needed. I hiked back to camp, loaded up our ropes and gear to set out to our beloved route. We hooked around the backside of Monkey Face wall, set up our gear, and started in to our day of climbing. We climbed all day and the next before heading back home. Smith Rock is amazing, it truly is one of the wonders of Oregon.
