Tuff Sh.t
A busy weekend in Smith's Dihedrals area! Many of Smith's classic lines are featured in this shot. The overhanging arete on the left is Chain Reaction (5.12), to its right is Darkness At Noon (5.13) and the climber is being lowerd from Heinous Cling (5.12). The climber high up on the face (center) is (I think!) doing French Connection - a 5.13 variation (that incidentally I think starts up the trad classic of Sunshine Dihedral (5.11+) on the right) to the famous To Bolt Or Not To Be (first 5.14 in North America). Arete to its left is Last Waltz (5.12). Chalked up face to the right of Sunshine hosts Powder In The Eyes (5.12+). Climber on the right is about to launch up into Crossfire (5.12) from top of Karate Crack. The arete to his left is Latest Rage (5.12). Many more that I don't point out...pretty amazing stretch of cliff even if almost all of it is in a universe different than my own. February 7, 2009.
