Since dogs can't be physically with you while climbing or on a slackline, there are special dog leash rules for climbers and slackliners.


Climbing on a multi-pitch route or working on that new long highline? While dogs need to be leashed and under control at all times throughout Smith Rock State Park or risk getting a ticket for $147, climbers and slackliners also need to bring a sitter to stay by their leashed pet.

If you leave your unattended leashed dog at the base of a route or line you'll get a ticket. And in the case of slackliners, we especially don't want your pet trying to join you. Keep them safe and save yourself a ticket. Bring a dog-sitter.
