Jason on Smoke.
This fun climb earns its 5.10 rating for its thin face moves midway up. The name Smoke supposedly came as a result of a fire starting in the backpack of the person who put up the route.
Starting on the right side of a V-shaped recess in the wall, move through easy jugs in a cave-like formation. Puzzle your way up a mostly blank face, then to easier ground and a small roof to the top.
Starts at the right end of the wall where Girls Only and Lock Down are located, just left of House of Giza.
Four bolts, anchors.

It was Chris Gibson's pack the fire started in while he was bolting the route.

Cool route but definitely hard for the grade. The bouldery crux alone is easily v3 so 5.10 is pushing it. Maybe I just always do this one in summer when the holds are extra greasy.

Smoke doesn't pack the same pump as Jody's down the way but the crux is significantly harder... Had to practically dyno off a terrible right... Maybe easy for the 6ft+?
