Today I got the urge to go for a hike. Problem is that the nearest place is ten miles away. Problem solved when I realized that I could ride 10 miles there hike 5 miles then ride 10 miles back! So I went on a mission camera fully charged and ready to hike at one of the worlds best rock climbing spots. Ladies and gentlemen I present to you Smith Rock State Park!
Smith Rock is full of magnificent rock climbing hiking and running right through the middle is the Crooked River. With world-class rock climbing, Smith is said to be the origin of modern American sport climbing. Sport climbing is rock climbing using permanent anchors fixed into the walls. Sport climbing is more gymnast related in contrast to traditional climbing where the climber can place their anchors where they feel is easiest. Unfortunately today there were not any climbers out.
