    man if it was a drug deal you'd think they'd go to a corner of the lot where there isn't someone staring at you through a window

    would the lots of rain make instability a big concern?

    It can do.

    I mean it just makes things slipery.

    So if you want to put up with it you can.

    And then you end up climbing easier stuff since the rain makes climbs that are usually within your level impossible.

    You can also climb on leeward rockfaces as they are also often dry.

    It's not like things are wet 24/7 here

    also Smith Rock is in central Oregon, which is a lot drier than the Portland area

    I was thinking more instability of the actual rock face itself

    the west coast here has like constant rockfalls and even in central otago where it doesn't rain much, most of the exposed rock is schist and it freezes often in the winter so any water that gets inside cracks in rocks expands and mostly the only rock climbing I would be comfortable doing would be exposed bedrock or volcanic stuff

    I dunno

    Oh man, I tried climbing random pieces of limestone once.

    Ripped off a chunk the size of my head.

    Later I was walking on limestone nearby and my foot went through it.

    But Llama to directly address that most places that people climb at state whether or not it is shitty rock of not so you really know what you are up against.

    Oregon has a lot of volcanic rock because there are a lot of dormant volcanoes in the area

    When I was there this past May, I did some climbing up near Hood River in the Scablands of Washington. Only about an hour away from Portland. It was fun, if a bit underwhelming, but that might have just been the site we visited.

    That basalt is hard as all hell.
