Great route. the last pitch is a run out. The crux was not taking approach shoes up the route, scree skiing down the back side in clmbing shoes. Almost roped up again
First multi-pitch climb at Smith. Lots of fun but cold hands before the sun hits.
The direct finish is worth it.
Very fun route. We did the direct option for the third pitch. This was my favorite pitch of the route.
I rope soloed the original route, placed a medium sized nut and a red tri-cam on the last pitch. I really liked this route.
The direct 5.8 option is more like 5.9 sport I think.
Great way to escape the crowds at Smith Rocks. Do the direct 5.8 option. You can link the first to pitches with a 60 meter rope.
