Rock climbing practice at Smith Rocks


Just after we got the ropes up at Smith on Saturday (and after the balloon descended into the cliffs), it started to rain. We pulled the ropes, waited out the worst of it, and reconvened at the North Point late morning. Eric, Kat, Joe, Reyna, Cece, Bob, Simon, Mark, Steve, Doug, Mark and Lynda worked a few routes.

Saturday evening at the taco feed at Mark and Lynda's we watched the wet weather pass. Sunday was delightful.
