Picnic Lunch Wall Area

Not wanting to hump your gear all over the park, or need somewhere with a variety of base routes to snag some afternoon shade?

The imposing 700 foot high Picnic Lunch Wall is just a quick hop up from the bridge on the stairs of the Misery Ridge Trail.climber on Picnic Lunch Wall at Smith Rock State Park

While most of the climbing at Smith is on a lot better rock, there are still some decent routes ranging from 5.9 to 5.14, including some aid climbs on the left half of the cliff.

While we point out the crumbling Shiprock, it’s only to tell you to just take pictures and be on your way. The crumbling rhyolite, while hard, has fractures that pull off when least expected.

Some choice routes of the area though:
