Caving and Rock Climbing in Central Oregon

Using a three-day weekend to its maximum advantage, a group of ten students and five leaders traveled to the desert of Central Oregon to cave and climb. The first day was spent exploring caves southeast of Bend, with a night of camping under the stars. The next day the group arose early and trekked to Smith Rock State Park for two days of rock climbing. Routes varying in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.11 were ascended. On the second day two groups did multi-pitch climbs on the red wall.
