Comments: This route does feel like a very hard 10c onsight. I don't think the description posted here is accurate though. The beta is strange to figure out first go, but once you've climbed the route there isn't any strenuous lock-off or dynamic move required.

Chimney technique will get you passed the first bolt and into a fingerlock and then up to the lieback. Look for the holds that aren't necessarily painted in chalk. There are multiple unchalked bomber holds on this route. Up top it can be hard to ... more >>

Comments: Not sure why this line is heralded as such a must do. There's a lot more interesting climbing at smith in my opinion.

Comments: Yeah that's in there. Especially with the X4 glue problems that would be a real puzzle to remove.

Comments: The first "pitch" is basically 5.5 choss that doesn't take much, if any, solid gear.

Comments: To add to the decent options... I agree that rapping the route could be a little tough on the rope and recommend other alternatives. A bit of 3rd and 4th class scrambling gets you to the backside rappel or walk off. The walk off is an EASY 8 foot 3rd class down climb to a ledge and then a walk down 3rd class dihedral formation to put you right next to "The Knob 10a"

After that the scree slope sucks no matter what.

Finally, the 5.8 trad pitch is infinitely better in my opinion than the one mov... more >>

Comments: I agree, it would be nice if rap anchors were added to this route. It's also not noted in the guidebook that the walk off is sketch and that rappelling requires a different anchor and two ropes.

I got caught in a lightning storm on this one a few days ago and was pissed to be improvising a rapid decent because of the lack of info on this route! Should have checked MP...

Comments: It should be noted that the left side of this route brushes up against poor rock. Care is advised in order to prevent pulling any of the larger stuff down on your belayer until the rock cleans up a bit.

Comments: Lots of bolts swinging on the zig zag pitch as of 8/9/2013 and the last one is so far out that it would be a miracle if it actually held a fall...

Comments: Yep, bring your nuts for this one. The first bolt is scary for sure. I'm comfortable onsighting 10's on sport and trad at Smith but didn't enjoy the journey to the first bolt. Once it's clipped you'll enjoy the run to the anchors.

Comments: Fun route with cool moves and great holds. Maybe a little spicy getting to that second bolt? Groundfall?

Comments: This route shouldn't be underestimated. It feels like 5.11 if you follow the bolts. If you go out left you are looking at a real pendulum and I've seen people hurt from taking that fall. NOT for the shaky 5.10 leader.

Comments: Tough pocket climbing that is great fun for Smith. I don't think it's overbolted or contrived. Check it out on TR after climbing Scary Llamas 5.8 to the right of it. Watch out for bees in the pockets mid/late summer...

Comments: Still 10a despite any "missing holds" but is a great warmup romp on this wall.
