When I started climbing back in the early 90’s, Smith Rock was the first major climbing destination I visited- the first of many visits. Monkey Face is one of the most striking features at Smith, but because it’s quite a long hike from the main climbing area, not many people make it back there. In addition to some spectacular routes (including Just Do It, which as 5.14c was for a time the hardest in the U.S.), it also happens to have a spectacular rope swing. Scroll to 2:24 for the action.
