Eric leading Lion's Jaw 5.8 trad climb - Smith Rock - Climbing Oregon hspace=10 src=Lion's Jaw





5.8 ***


Trad Single Pitch







Smith Rock has very few easy trad climbs that are worth doing, but this is one of them.  For its grade, I don't think there is a better trad climb in the park.  It has so many options that you can climb the crack, stem and face climb the corner or use the best of both to make a great, kinesthetic climb.  The roof is deceptive, wanting to suck you deep into it...stay away from the roof!
