yep  Sucess!

Climbed with Luke after a busted [weathered out] attempt of Mt Rainier, we decided to head to warmer climes, Smith Rock seemed obvious, and what better route to do than the Pioneer!

Excellent Exposure  Sucess!

Rainy at Baker,rainy at Rainier, rainy at Hood...kept driving and ended up at Smith! Good thing we brought our rock gear. i wouldn't trade the lead of Panic Point for any other climbing experience that summer.

Crowded  Sucess!

Awesome, did a 5.8 variation out of panic point, prolonged the awesome exposure, spent 3 hours in the cave waiting for 5+ people to do the incredible 140ft free rappel. Great climb.

Route Climbed: Pioneer Route  Sucess!

Climbed this awesome spire with Dirk on an extended trip to OR to climb the 3 Sisters. I expected that I could just jug up the aid pitch, but instead I had to learn how to aid climb on the spot (and in the dark) to clean the pitch! I never realized how exausting aid climbing was until then :-)

I tried to wimp out at the cave, but Dirk insisted on finishing, and I'm glad we did! The views were wonderful, and the rappel in the dark was freaky, especially as the wind began spinning me!

Did you get your huckleberry icecream?  Sucess!
