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.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
