Overview

Out of Harm's Way is a nice 2 pitch climb on the Spiderman Buttress at Smith. The first pitch is sustained crack then face while the second starts out with a super exposed unprotected 5.7 traverse. This is a great climb for the 5.9 and over leader, but is not recommended for those pushing their grade.

Getting There

Approach to the Spiderman Buttress (see the main page). Out of Harm's Way starts on the obvious right facing flake system just left of the Spiderman variation start.

Route Description

OOHW P1


Pitch #1 - 5.8 - Jamb and lieback up the right facing flake until about 60% of the way up. Look for the first line of bolts heading directly up the wall. Now climb this steep thin face for 100 feet to a bolted anchor on the ledge. The upper half of this pitch felt more like 5.9 to me. 160 feet

Pitch #2 - 5.7 - Traverse the 5.7 slopey ledge to your right for 20 feet with no pro and big exposure under you. Get some gear in at the arete then climb the easier cracks straight up to the summit platform. 100 feet

Down - Walk to your right and follow the trail down to your packs with one short class 4 section at the bottom.

Essential Gear
