An annual pilgramage to Smith Rocks over the Remembrance Day weekend. It has been a long-standing tradition of the VOC to seek refuge from storm clouds in the guarded southern interior of Oregon. Join us on our journey and you will find your true climbing self over 4 days in Smith Rocks.
This trip is mostly self-sufficient which means you should find your own climbing partner, gear, tent partner and food. We will assembly at the pre-trip meeting to organize rides and those climbers looking for a partner. A stick-clip is recommended for most climbers since some of the first bolts can be quite high.
What is Smith Rocks? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wm8A7FH2Qg4
Smith Rocks is the birth-place of American sport climbing. There are beautiful lines going up faces which would not be protectable using traditional means so they were bolted. The rock is quite different from our local granite, with lots of pockets (some big enough to sit in), and lots of pebbles to pull on. Smith Rocks is not very top-rope friendly for the most part so it's recommended that someone in your party can lead climb.
