Smooth Operator, 5.9
3rd Pitch- 130’- 5.9/ This is one of the better 5.9 trad pitches at Red Rock NCA. Start up and left in a beautiful varnished hand crack for approximately 30’. Then traverse straight right where it makes since via very positive holds, for both feet and hands, to the looming heavily varnished corner. Head up the corner for approximately 100' until you see the fixed rap out left on the face. Make an easy exit to that fixed station. Like the first pitch, it is important that you extend your placements if clipping both ropes to avoid rope drag on the upper section of this corner.
