We like Smith Rock State Park

While the sport climbing on the ignimbrite tuff is what made Smith famous, it's the uber-technical climbing on the basalt rimrock of the upper and lower gorges that I love best.
Truly a special place with a great community. It might seem like a sleepy backwater by modern standards, and the climbing is very technical, but it's worth visiting!
What's not to love? Smith has fantastic quality tuff with tiny nubbins, crimps and pockets, amazing rock formations like the iconic monkey face, and enough routes and boulders to keep anyone busy.
