Comments: One of the funnest roof sequences I've done on a trad climb. Definitely techy down low.

Comments: Cool problem, kind of sharp. Sit start adds some difficulty and a couple of cool moves.

Comments: The original start was matched from the undercling, which substantially increased the difficulty. The right exit on the topout is fun and a little easier. I'm curios about knee bar beta, didn't even try to find any.

Comments: Do people actually stem through the corner to the jug, or cut right around the arrette. I couldn't figure out how to stay in the corner.

Comments: Specific gear for the sushi farmer ending is one #2 C4, and one green alien, and one red alien for after the crimp move at the top of JG if you like to place a piece up there.

Comments: Pretty awesome climbing, but quite hard and cryptic at the roof. It took a really long time to get the rope up. The rock is still a little flaky at the bottom, but should clean up with time. If the route was a little cleaner and more continuous, I would give it four stars.

Comments: The majority of the routes have now been rebolted (see descriptions), and are ready for some serious grip-clinging action. The grades above are guesses, please comment/list grades so that we can get a good consensus. The routes could also use more traffic to clean them up a little. Have fun!

Comments: Don't listen to Aaron's gear beta. Place a 3.5 or a 4 slightly to the right of the middle of the traverse and run the rope behind the flake, it won't bind.

Comments: Now there are four bolts at the layback section, one old left over star drive and a new rawl 5 piece on the left, and two new expansion bolts on the right. Two of them should probably be removed. The new bolt at the anchor needs a piece of chain for rapping too.

Comments: Fun climbing. I found the first pitch to be the crux. It was rather perplexing climbing, especially as I was expecting a 5.8 (old clint cummins guidebook).

Comments: I thought this was one of the best routes I've been on at Smith! Just after the crux bulge on the 3rd pitch, there are some loose flakes. I would second the recommendation to link the 3rd and 4th pitches, but there would be some ledge fall potential from the crumbly stuff on the last pitch if you whipped. I thought the 3rd pitch, although easier, was absolutely brilliant and not to be missed.

Comments: It's also possible to approach the traverse more directly from below now, which is still kind of dirty, but reasonably enjoyable climbing. It probably adds about 30' to the route which makes it a bit fuller value. Not quite up to the quality of the rest of the LTW routes, although it may clean up in time.

Comments: It's amazing how much the maples have grown. The cliff probably used to dry out a lot faster.

Comments: The Psychopath variation is really fun, not particularly hard, but the crux is techy and tricky.

I would recommend continuing past the block of doom about 25' to the base of the dihedral on P4 if you've got a 70m. The belay will be more comfortable with better pro and the belayer will be able to see their climber.

I would also link P6 & P7 together, take a #2 & #3 C4 to protect the mini dihedral. We didn't find the two widely spaced bolts on the face before the belay at the t... more >>

Comments: Super fun climbing. I actually thought the "10d" pitch off of library ledge was more challenging than the arrette pitch. It was a great way to finish off Iconoclast. The Psychopath pitch was also fun, although a tricky crux.
