So went to this ice cream stand that has climbing nearby. I had huckleberry ice cream and blackberry ice cream. The huckleberry was best. The guy that runs the ice cream stand out of a gear store seems a little standoffish and grumpy. Couldn’t engage him in much of a conversation about how it is made and what not.
Oh yeah we were climbing at Smith Rock, Oregon. One of the top climbing destinations in the country and one of the first places to have bolted lines. We saw
another rattlesnake. It was super hot. We were up at five most mornings just to climb a couple pitches. Spent most of the day chasing shade and staking out the ice cream place.
So we got ice cream twice but had to walk down to the ice cream stand four times just to get it two times. You see the place doesn’t post hours. Even when Grumpy is there you have to ring a bell and wait and wait…then he comes and does he open the door to the gear store? No. He only opens a little window so you can slide in the cash and he can hand out the cones. Ten cents extra for a bowl.
