Description:

Hello everyone!!!

I am planning a trip to the beautiful Smith Rock climbing area for the long weekend. Alternative climbing area would be Skaha.

This is NOT an instructional trip or a beginner-friendly trip. To make the most out of Smith Rock I recommend you know how to lead climb outdoors, or have a confirmed buddy who can lead climb with you. The first set of bolts are placed quite high up (due to rock erosion) and this can be intimidating, you should be a confident outdoor rock climber. There is a small section of top-rope climbing, but it's probably not worth the 9-10 hour (one-way) drive!

The purpose of this trip is to get VOCers together and car share to reach such a far-away land and have some fun! 

The purpose of the pre-trip meeting will be to ensure everyone understands the general concept of the trip, to plan out car and food groups, and to re-familiarized with setting up anchors (for those like me who have not climbed all winter). This will let us hit the rock, climbing! (Get it).

I'm setting a maximum of 3 carloads because that's the amount of people I'm most comfortable being semi-accountable for, for my first time running a VOC trip. However, there is no maximum to the amount of VOCers I hope to see there, if you are fully self-reliant and happy to meet up for beers after a nice day of climbing!
