Hosted evening of chock craft practice at Northern Point, Smith Rock. We will be placing protection in the various cracks along the cliff base.
Bring your rack, and/or my rack will be available to use by club members to offer a wide range of options! As a group we can talk about and critique the placements. This type of practice promotes efficiency when selecting "pro" ....i.e. hopefully we choose the correct piece the first time and to have it set solidly enough to hold a fall.
>>This is a non-climbing evening. However, we will approach the base via the 3rd class route<<
Recommended items to bring:
Protection; cams, chocks, etc...sorry but no pitons this time!
State Park parking pass
Layered clothing for sun and shade
Meet by 5:30pm at the parking lot turn around loop at the far (north) end of the NE Crooked River Drive. Carpooling encouraged.
