Part time dirtbag driving back home to Oakland, never been to Smith Rock so I'm stopping in on the way! Planning to arrive tomorrow morning, climb wednesday and thursday, and head out friday morning.

Me = safety conscious and experienced outside, but a Smith Rock first-timer

You = safety conscious, comfortable belaying with an assisted brake

Us = '5 Gallon Buckets' and other bolted fun 5.8/5.9s for a mellow wednesday with as much mileage as our fitness and psych permits.

So are you saying that you won't climb while belayed on an ATC?

I've only seen five gallon buckets empty on a week day while it was raining hard

Hmm is it worth the wait? I'm kind of psyched to join the herd.

ATC supertopo comment was meant in jest... mostly... 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
