Smith Rock, Oregon
Climb 3,000 Sport, Trad, and Multi-pitch Routes
Smith Rock is a world famous climbing destination located in the heart of Central Oregon, near the town of Terrebonne and close to Bend.
Famous for incredible rock, warm weather and stellar scenery, there isn’t much more that you’ll be left wanting from Smith! Sport climbing was revolutionized at Smith Rock; the first place in the United States where rock faces were bolted, and to this day, it continues to be a world-renowned climbing destination with something for everyone.
With stellar face-climbing on welded tuft, strenuous crack climbing on columnar basalt, and breathtaking views of the Oregon high desert, it’s easy to wonder why you are always able to find an empty route at Smith. But luckily, you are.
With over 3,000 documented routes, you will always find something new – in addition to some shade or sun, depending on what you desire!
