Smith Rock Trad and Sport Climbing Partner Smith Rock Trad and Sport Climbing Partner

Hey there!
I'm a 31 YO male living in the town of Mt. Shasta. Looking for a climbing partner to explore Smith Rock. I can send primarily on weekends but have a good amount of PTO I can take.

Thru Hikers

I spent 3 days at the Vermillion Valley Resort in early August, coincidentally right after it had been taken over by new Owners. I enjoyed being around the thru hikers stopping there for re-supply. It reminded me of when I hiked the JMT years ago. Now, after one month of operation, the Resort apparently has to close. That's tough for the new Owners, but what about the thru hikers counting on picking up supplies? And ...
