This Saturday is the Spring Thing at Smith Rock State Park, that time when climbers and other volunteers give back a little to Smith Rock.
Originally I was to man the visitor center for the day, but one of the project leads cancelled so I suddenly became a project lead. I think it was a promotion.
My project will be the Rope-de-dope trail. Filling in around the washed out steps, repairing the erosion boards and generally just cleaning the trail up a bit.
The lead ranger has many, many projects going on all at the same time. A lot of the nice benches that we enjoy around Morning Glory and the Dihedrals were built in similar projects.
There will be food and auctions of donated climbing equipment in the PM.
Hit the park around 8am you will get in on the big sign event. If you come later you can still help out. All helping hands are appreciated.
Be sure and ask for the Rope-de-dope crew, after all I am pretty lazy and can use all the help I can get.
