4 out of 5 stars My first Smith Rock climb

It was really tough to get used to this type of rock. Pretty thin but not to challenging.

5 out of 5 stars Too short so we made it a multipitch.

Short and sweet vertical climb on tiny knobs and small crimps. We made it into a multipitch by climbing the second pitch of Bunny Face/Bookworm.

4 out of 5 stars faked it

I was tired, and it was the last climb of the day so when it seemed hard to get started I just used the crack to get off the ground and then cruised the rest of the route. Then I realized that the crux was that first move and felt silly. Felt prouder of myself for being able to pronounce the name than I was of that ascent.

3 out of 5 stars Harder than a 9?

Some folks there (probably gym climbers) thought this was harder than a 10. I don't think so.
