This is the start for the "Smoke Bluff Connection".

Handjam and lieback to a good ledge, if it were only longer it would be the best 5.8 out there?

Good route, but even better because it leads in to Phlegmish Dance. A great one-two punch.

A great 5.8, was one of my first leads at Squamish. If you are a new trad leader, this is a little tricky near the bottom where it is also polished. Be careful and find the rests and protection. There may be better first 5.8's to lead.

One of the best 5.8s I have climbed. A little funky to protect the crux. Put in a couple of good pieces below the bulge and power through it. Solid finger, hand, and toe jams.
