Looking for an easy multi-pitch? Want to top out and get a great view of Smith Rock? Then this is the route for you. This 2-pitch classic is perfect for those looking to teach some multi-pitch skills or just have easy climbing fun on good rock. It's easy, so if you are looking for something a bit more moderate I would move along.
Pitch 1: Romp up easy low-angle rock past the first belay and onto a small ledge. Either belay makes for a comfortable perch.
Pitch 2: Time to get a bit more vertical after the initial low-angle pitch. Use good holds to work your way up a vertical well-bolted face to the top of Koala Rock.
Descent:Walk east towards the back side of Koala Rock (away from the face you climbed up) and scramble down to a big ledge where rappel anchors sit. Make the short rappel off the backside and enjoy a steep and loose descent back around to the front of Koala Rock.

Mad Rock decided to give the Flash 2.0 an upgrade with the release of the Flash 2018 model. Having been a fan of the Flash 2.0 for years as a solid gym shoe, it was hard to believe that the shoe could get much better while staying at the same price point, but Mad Rock did it.
