Smith Rock: Climb Time
Our climbing adventures in Central Oregon. This park is out of this world amazing!
I wasn’t expecting to climb since it had been over two years since I had been on the wall in the gym, but Sylvan was secretly prepared and brought my shoes…
It was uber tiring to climb even one route, although it definitely made me want to get back into climbing/swimming/everything active.
Sylvan took my little point and shoot with him on this next route and was able to get some nice shots of the landscape:
and a self portrait of sorts!:
Out of all of the climbers climbing that day, I was with the two most-mindful climbers on the block! They communicate really well, double check every rope and tie and always wear their helmets. 😀 It was amazing to see how many people didn’t have helmets (a good majority …) and didn’t pay much attention to their partner. As shaky as I was watching these two lead climb to great heights, I also knew that they were both alert and smart about it and still were able to have a laugh. Yay for safe fashion!
