Alan Watts has been climbing at Smith Rock since 1975 and is the climber most familiar with, and responsible for, its rise to prominence as an international sport-climbing mecca. With other local climbers, Watts spearheaded the changes over the past twenty-five years that put Smith Rock on the map and created the entirely new classification of sport climbing.
