Hit up Smith Rock this last week over Spring Break. It was my third time there and I'm just starting to get use to the unique climbing style. The park is absolutely beautiful and would definitely recommend climbing there if you can. I sent Aggro Monkey, 5.13b on my third attempt...this route was really hard for me because of the powerful moves. I also flashed Vision, 5.12b, and onsighted Kings of Rap, 512d. Working on my endurance, I was able to put 3 good laps in on my previous ascent of Churning in the Wake, 5.13a.


I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time down there this year. 
My goals for next trip are:
Darkness at Noon, 5.13a
Rude Boys, 5.13c
Taco Chips, 5.13a
Times Up, 5.13b

All of these routes I believe are doable, possibly flashable (I've tried only Times Up). Thanks FIVE TEN for the great shoes that are keeping me sending. :)
