Another easy but elegant climb gracing the front side of Koala Rock, Round There is perfect climb for a new leader or a good warm-up for nearby climbs. The textured face, good pockets, and relatively low angle climbing make it an enjoyable romp for anyone.
The 5.7 move comes right off the ground on small holds and few ways to reach the first bolt. It's easy, it's truly 5.7 and a lot of fun. It's not uncommon to find people on this climb and others waiting to get on it. It's easily one of the best beginner Smith Rock lead climbs based on ease of climbing, fun, and bolt spacing.
