Road Trip: Smith Rock - Nov 3-7, 2011

Got down to Smith last week with Tim and JP. It was raining when we arrived, but no problem - thanks to Tim we were staying in a three-bedroom condo! Friday was sunny and warm - beautiful climbing weather. We got down to business in the Dihedrals with ascents of Bunny Face (5.7), Helium Woman (5.9), Captain Xenolith (5.10b) and Lycopodophyta (5.7).

THE SUN IS OUT - GAME ON!

Sunday morning began with snow followed by rain. JP headed home; Tim and I watched football.

Monday was sunny and warm again! Tim and I climbed Dancer (5.7) and JetĂ© (5.8) and Lion's Jaw (5.8). Then I led Light on the Path (5.10a). For our last hurrah we linked Ginger Snap (5.8) to Cry Baby (5.9) - always a fun romp!
