CLIFF (CRAG) NOTES ON SMITH ROCK: A GUEST BLOG POST BY “SUMMIT TRAIL AMY”

Amy Sue Matthews, AKA “Summit Trail Amy” as dubbed by SmithRock.com for her great trail conditions reporting on the Summit Trail Loop that started with last winter’s snow dump, is Smith Rock State Park’s biggest fan. Now a volunteer for the park, she attends every learning event she can to expand her knowledge to provide visitors the best experience that she can assist with. Last weekend, during the American Alpine Club’s Smith Rock Craggin’ Classic, she met up with Alan Watts, a name synonymous with the birth of sport climbing in America on his annual Walking Tour of Smith Rock for the Craggin’ Classic.
