We like Smith Rock State Park

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!
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.
First off, before you even start climbing, the area is gorgeous. Then it just gets better as you get up onto the rock and there's so much there to do, it's an amazing place
