The Northeast Face of the eastern side of the Smith Rock Group is home to a majority of bolted routes on vertical to overhanging rock. Much like the nearby Phoenix Buttress and Llama Wall, the rock is solid with lots of sharp pockets and edges. Here you will find plenty of single pitch gems along with a number of multi-pitch adventures, some of which top-out on the Smith Rock Group.
The Northeast face of the Smith Rock Group is located between the Phoenix Buttress and the Llama Wall just above the Crooked River. It gets nice afternoon shade.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
