This summer, Ben & I had the pleasure of spending a week climbing at Smith Rock in Terrebonne, Oregon. The sense of community here is strong and unlike my usual experiences in the city. Familiar faces at the campsite, crag and gear shop every day. Tasteful Oregon brews after long days of climbing. Getting to know a place is such a treat. Too often, we aren’t allowed that opportunity because we’re passing through or quickly whisked away to other places and responsibilities. If time allows, find a place and get to know all its nuances and intricacies. There’s a world inside.
Here are some words and photos that sum up our trip. I hope you enjoy them.
