Karl HelserFist time...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 7, 2006

Karl Helser

Just finished Mazama BCEP. This was really the first time climbing real rock away from "the class". I did five routes with Brian Jenkins leading the way. "On the job experience" is definitely the best way to learn this activity. I'm anxious to do more...

Brian Jenkins

My first lead ever was called something like Lollipop League there? (very tough sounding, eh?) Did some others nearby in the 9 range I think.

I do remember there being a large group of organized climbers there from Bend led by SP member, Robert Speik. He was telling them that the only place at Smith he had ever seen a rattlesnake was there at the base of Adit Rock. (something for climbers to think about when there, eh?)

5/7/06 - Climbed with Karl Helser. Led 5 easy trad routes to the top of Bette's Needles, Flat Top, Staender Summit, The Mole and Independence Tower. Great day and a lot of fun.

3/15/14 - More at Adit Rock, summitted Bette's Needle again.
