Morning Glory Wall

Featured Route: Zebra to Zion (5.10)

 

This stunning four pitch corner system is one of the most highly prized routes at Smith.  Starting at the center of 'Zebra to Zion', Smith Rock Climbing Guides, Smith Rock State Park, Oregonthe popular Morning Glory crag, other climbers quickly disappear when you enter the classic 100 foot stemming and jamming corner of the second pitch, ending at a spacious ledge halfway up the wall.  A short lie-back section leads to an exposed traverse and thin slab, placing you at the base of the intimidating "Zion" pitch.  A move left over the abyss leads to a steep flake crack, with hidden jams and merciful jugs that take you securely to the top.  You won't want to pass this route up.
