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
