The west side of the Smith Rock Group
This region can be access by hiking up and over Asterisk Pass from the main area of the park or walking around the Southern Tip along the Crooked River. While the concentration of climbs isn't nearly as prolific as its eastern side, the west side does offer pleasant climbing away from crowds at Cod Rock as well the ever classic Wherever I May Roam

Your 5-Day Forecast at a Glance
The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
