Climbing is good times anywhere, but always better with good buddies.



This is Jason Stowers, of Epic-Mount-Hood-ski-accident fame, getting ready to go up a new route
set on the Picnic Lunch wall of Smith Rock, OR. Nice helmet you fashion idol you!


Here is Jason at the top of the 2nd pitch of Teddy Bear's Picnic . The first pitch is a
good 5.10b, with the second coming in a very exposed 5.10c.


After a lot of whining and moaning, I also made it to the top of the 2nd pitch. And yes Mom, I
used TWO anchor points.


Me, taking a picture of myself at the first rap station on the way down. Anyone going to try this climb,
make sure you equalize your rope before rapping down as it is almost exactly 30m between anchors.


Stowers, the cool guy, coming down to the midpoint of the climb. Nice shades buddy. They look like Avie's...
