Comments: Great climbing. Anchor is still good, but getting rusty...might be nice to swap out in the next few years.

Comments: Tricky climb. I had a tough time reading the rock on this climb, and others on the wall. Fun though.

Comments: KEEP YOUR DOGS ON A LEASH.

This place gets a lot of action, and is fun for cranking out a few climbs after work or whatever. Every time I go there, however, dogs are running around getting in everyone's way. They walk on my rope, snarl at each other, etc. If you want to bring your dog fine, but keep it leashed at the bottom of the climb you are on.

Comments: FYI, the perfect lieback pic up in the description is from the route called "perfect lieback" not the Red Pillar.

I had issues with getting the rope stuck on this, bring some webbing to leave on rap...If this thing ever gets retrobolted anchors...it seems to me that it would be better to put them on top of the pillar, instead of where they are at currently...just for rope drag issues.

Comments: I didnt see any anchors at the top of pitch 5. Perhaps we missed them, however there are ample opportunities to sling a tree or build an anchor. A handfull of random pins can be found on the face. If you think you are off-route on the higher pitches look for the pruned trees. Fun climb.

Comments: Awesome climb. I think its the best archetypal climb of the grade for Smith Rock. The little nubbins you balance up characterize so much of what makes Smith sweet.

Comments: Really fun line, took some figuring for me to work out the beta. Very sharp. If you are on a road trip save it for the last day.

Comments: The protections is so bad on this climb it is just a formality. Rope drag can be terrible. When I got to the top of the first pitch the bolts were chopped. I think its actually safer to solo this for the leader because rope drag can be very bad. Very cool climbing, but know what you are getting into.
