Pitch 3 was very fun
Did the Amphetamine spinoff after Pitch 1, but then rapped and did the amazing Pitch 3.
climbed this with a buddy mid week and we got caught out and rapped in the dark on a 70m (2x 60m rec for first rap but 70m works fine if you are comfortable with down climbing easy 5.3 unprotected). i lost my watch at the base so went back 2 days later to get it. decided to free solo route. really excellent decision except you cant walk off so need to pack a rope up. my favorite easy route at smith so far.
Fun day in the park, this route was great, nice rappels down. We beat the rain storm by about 5 minutes...
Climbed the first time with Luke. Our weathered out attempt on Mt. Rainier led us to Smith and drier climates, where we ticked off some classics. I have climbed this route many time since! I never seem to tire of the 3rd pitch!
After completing the Marsupial Traverse we hiked over to Super Slab. This was a fun, fast route.
Awesome route, the last pitch was too much fun.
Guide seems to indicate bolts for an anchor at end of P2, bottom of P3. We found none and used a gear anchor/belay. FYI.
Finished via Amphetamine Grip variation (5.7).
Nuts to 2". Camalots. Great, crisp weather.
