Smash Mouth, 5.11+

1st Pitch- 30m- 5.11/ Smash Mouth starts up the same corner as Take Back the Rainbow. I advise soloing up to the first ledge and belaying the first pitch of Smash Mouth from there. Move right and continue up the finger splitter on the short wall in front of you. The crux is approximately half way up, kind of a reach to get a dirty hand jam on a sandy mostly featureless wall. Could be the 2nd hardest move of the entire climb. Continue with a few easier hands to the top. Move right into the 5.9+ hand corner. Pull the fun bulge/roof above to reach the fixed belay with a decent stance.
