Sign of the Times

5.13a/b, Sport, 85 ft,  Avg: 2.2 from 5 votes

Oregon > Central Oregon > Smith Rock > (g) Morning Glory Wall

Description

This choss pile is actually cleaning up nicely and host some great movement. Besides the balancy and crimpy crux, most of the route has good holds with big moves on a slight overhang. I enjoy this route more than Taco Chips but it still has some flaky rock up top. Most of the hand holds are good but watch your foot placements.

If you have no other new 5.13's in the park to try that interest you, I would give this one a try. It is a quick tick for a strong climber.

[Hide Comment] I actually thought this route was lots of fun. Crumbly though it may be, the boulder problem crux is excellent and swimming through the big moves afterward is just a good old time. Also try Taco Times! First 3 bolts of Taco Chips then traverse into Sign of the Times. Apr 13, 2018
