  1. Smith Rock Dec 21

    Passing through the Smith Rock/Bend area the afternoon of the 20th, on my way down to Cali with a couple pups. I'll be camping in the area and would love to get some climbing in on the 21st if anyone is interested! Just looking to get out and enjoy whatever I have time for! I am just coming back from a back injury so I won't be doing anything above a 10d/11a, but I'm happy to belay for whatever! Hit me up and let me know! Even if it's just for a couple pints on my way through Bend.
  2. Climbing Partner

    I'm looking to do some day or half day weekend cragging or alpine routes within range of Kirkland. I've been climbing for 10+ years but with kids, I haven't got out much in the last few years. I'm good to lead up to 5.10a and have a rack and all the stuff. I also have a somewhat flexible work schedule so I could do weekday dawn patrols at Index or 32/38.
  3. I'm in Coupeville until July 7, am new to rock climbing and looking for a partner. I'm an excellent belayer, understand top rope systems, sport routes, and cleaning trad routes. I have a harness, shoes, helmet, a few lockers & non-lockers, ATC, but no rope or slings, etc. I have a flexible schedule.
  4. I've been climbing for 15 years, I lead climb Trad / Sport 5.8 - 5.11 mostly. Looking for someone to climb with in Western Washington, my climbing partner moved and I need to get on the rock. I live in Anacortes near Mt. Erie, I can meet up anywhere from Bellingham to the Cascades down to Hwy 2 and to Eastern, WA on the weekends. broberts.spatialagent@gmail.com
  5. Trip: Vesper Peak - True Grit II 5.8 - another new route Date: 9/25/2015 Trip Report: After intermittent work over the last two seasons I finished up another new route on the North Face of Vesper Peak. Once again extensive cleaning revealed a sustained moderate line in an outstanding position. The highlight of the climb is a long finger crack up the middle of the headwall followed by positive face climbing to a great belay perch. Some of the climbing is only so-so but overall I was pretty happy with the end result. Belays are all bolted and protection is about 50/50 bolts and gear. Bring a rack to a #2 Camalot including small-to-large stoppers and some extra finger to off-finger cams. Seasons starting to get a bit long in the tooth up there but it should be doable for a bit longer if you don't mind the chill and give it a day or two to dry out after rain. Pitch Description P1 Easy climbing on clean granite. Step left to a bolted belay below an obvious narrow chimney. 5.4 ~200' P2 Up a groove to the squeeze chimney then a difficult move onto a short bolted slab. The chimney can be avoided by moving right into a short corner (watch for loose blocks at it's top) 5.8 100' P3 A nice pitch. Slab, then a shallow corner, pull over a small overhang and follow jigsaw rock to a tiny belay ledge. 5.7 100' P4 Climb the long sustained splitter with a crux step across where the crack disappears briefly. Fun juggy climbing leads to a belay at the crest of the headwall. 5.8 120' P5 A short scruffy pitch of easy face and slab climbing leads to the top of the face. 5.6 (not 5.8 like in the image below!) 80' Click for Larger Image Looking down the headwall at the intermittent finger cracks Climbers on Pitch 4 of the Ragged Edge Gear Notes: Bring a rack to a #2 Camalot including small-to-large stoppers and some extra finger to off-finger cams. Approach Notes: See Ragged Edge TR
