Kelly on Slicksides
Start to the right on good holds and move left into the obvious crack. Great jams and slick feet bring you into the crux up higher. A couple dicey moves up and left bring you to the topout. Many people climb this route as a boulder problem. In that fashion it's a great highball but can easily be TR'd or led on gear. A classic for the whole state. Because of the high crux and a non-movable rock in the middle of the landing (when bouldering) many ankles have met their demise on this route. Vertical crack in the middle of the large pot hole.
bouldering pads, standard rack for tr.

the smearing on this "route" is next to useless. the rock is so slick that its almost pointless to try smearing

I recall having this line so wired (circa 1978-82?) that I downclimbed it ropeless and blindfolded, long before the advent of crashpads.
