The Smoking Room

|Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>|
The Smoking Room climbs up and right through a bulge onto a huge stalactite feature and then up that for a way to a ledge and anchor above. The crux is a tricky section that climbs steeper than it looks, owing to some traversing movement. This is one of the better climbs on the wall and deserves to be done.
As you reach the Melting Wall through the arch from Fire Wall, turn around and look on its right side. The bolted line starting just to its right and finishing above the path is Bon Soir. Starting just right of this, the rightmost route is 'The Smoking Room.'
7 bolts to a bolted anchor on a ledge.

Not a fan of this one... dunno why. It seems to hold a lot of heat... sweaty climbing for sure.
