I was camping alone until midnight when my brother and some friends showed up.
We climbed in Smith Rock State Park all weekend. Monday my brother and a few other experienced climbers took off early to do a multi-pitch climb. That left a bunch of us a little less experienced climbers to fend for ourselves. We went to Rope-de-dope and setup a top rope on an easier climb some those new to climbing could try it out. I climbed that one as a warm up and then got the guts to do my first lead climb. I had never done lead belay either but ended up doing that at least 4 times over the weekend.
The route I planned on climbing I had climbed last year so I was pretty confident I could do it. After a slip at the beginning, I made it the rest of the way up without a fall. It was a great way to end a great weekend.
We had decent weather. It was a little cold but mostly dry. We did have a little bit of hail at one point and as I was hiking out to my car on Monday, it started raining pretty good.
Routes I climbed:
Purple Headed Warrior
Five Gallon Buckets
How Low Can You Go
North Shore Crack
