Super Slab and Moscow  Sucess!

These two 5.6 routes are both very fun and should be on list for every aspiring trad climber who visits Smith.

Chouinard's Crack  Sucess!

I left some blood in that crack. My hands were already mangled from the previous days.

Route Climbed: Super Slab  Sucess!

Climbed a few routes (Easy Reader, Lichen It, Cinnamon Slab and others) yesterday at the Diehedrals and climbed Superslab today at Red Wall. Doubles on small nuts would've been nice for superslab since we used a couple for the anchor.

Route Climbed: Multiple Date Climbed: Multiple  Sucess!

Moscow - Nice 3 pitch 5.6. Pitch 1 was ok, but 2 and 3 were very nice. The topout is pretty chossy, I knocked a couple of rocks off. With Haydar and Bruce. It was cold!

Super Slab - Nice 5.6 multipitch. Radek combined pitches 1 and 2, which were ok, and I lead pitch 3, which was very nice.

Let's Face It - Stellar 5.10B face climb, just left of Peking. Lead it cleanly on the first try. Very sustained at the grade.

Peking, first pitch. Lead this nice fingercrack just left of Moscow in April of 2004. Stiff for a 5.8.

Route Climbed: Couple Date Climbed: Couple  Sucess!

Bill's Flake - short, 5.10a crack on very good rock. Lotta fun hand jams but short.

Paper Tiger - fun, obscure route. Very good rock/pro thru. cruxes and some choss & runouts on easier terrain (~5.7). 5.8-ish traversing hand crack on P1 was the highlight for me.

Super Slab - climbed with Martin Cash (who led P3). Fun P3; forgettable P1 and P2.

Peking - fun P1; P2 similar in difficulty to Moscow P2 (not that chossy).

Moscow (2X) - fun climb (chilly in winter)

Super Slab (Shirley led it - I have yet to do the whole thing).

Ho Chi Min Trail - 1st pitch (higher two pitches go at A3...though I think they've gone free since the guidebook was published 11+??).

Route Climbed: Moscow and Super Slab Date Climbed: January 22, 2005 and January 18, 2003  Sucess!

January 22, 2005--climbing Super Slab again. The highlight is definitely the third pitch. Always a fun route. We topped out and then went and did First Kiss on Kiss of the Lepers.

Climbed Super Slab in Spring of 2001 with our friend Brian Jenkins. Lots of fun!

January 19, 2003--Mark and I did this classic route with our friend Brian Sykes. Have done it numerous times--always fun!!

Route Climbed: Moscow, Super Slab, some sport climbs. Date Climbed: 1st in 92 last in 97  Sucess!

Super Slab is the coolest 5.6 at Smith Rock. Moscow is great because it just goes on and on. Some great sport climbs to the left side of Red Wall as well.

Super Slab was my first route at Smith, and first ever multi-pitch climb.

Route Climbed: Super Slab Date Climbed: Spring 2001  Sucess!

My first multi-pitch climb. Was really nervous but thought it was cool at the first anchor to watch Golden Eagles soaring below me. At the top we did the 5.7 slabby scramble over to the top of Misery Ridge and then I did my first rap off the other side. Then spent some time getting spanked on a toproped 10c. I'll have to see if I can dig my old pictures out of this climb.
