Spicy.Climb the arete to the right of Tale of Two Shitties using the arete and crimps. The climbing and rock are excellent, the bolts are a bit spaced making it a lil' scary. Bolts anywhere other than where they are would be extremely hard to clip. Perhaps a bit hard for the grade (aren't all 10.d's at Smith?)...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR

Had two nerf-sized football rocks fall from the top of the formation while climbing today. They came about 15 seconds apart from I'm guessing hikers at the top since we were the only climbers in the area. Not cool.

There is a new extension to Sundown. Its goes at approx. 10b range above Sundown's anchor and the next pitch after that is upper 11 range. All bolts. Get on it!
