Sallie in the middle section of the route.

Description 

Pappy Smear is a pure face and pure sport route which starts on the left side of Middle tier under first bolt found about 8' up. Although you don't see the second bolt, it is there! The third bolt is right near the top of the pitch and nicely protects the crux move getting to anchors.

Protection 

3 bolts to 2 bolt anchors. First two bolts are a bit older but last one is newer.

Pappy Smear is a fun little route which is a nice link-up from the Lower Tier climbs to the Upper Tier. Climbing is moderate face climbing to the last bolt which is where the hardest move on the climb is.
