Loran Smith on the FA of Adanedi.
Climb the intermittent crack with good protection to the double bolt anchors.
Pronounced "ah dah nay dey," the route name is the Cherokee word for "gift," or "to give". Jim Dickson found and scrubbed the line via rappel, then insisted that Loran Smith take the FA lead when he bumbled up to the cliff after the work was done.
In the area called "Humphrey's Hollow" in the Handren guide. This climb is located about 100 feet left of "Smear Factor" on a large mossy slab with a clean stripe. A four bolt face climb ascends the right side of the cleaned stripe, and to it's left is the obvious intermittent crack line of Adanedi.
Protects well with small/very small cams and small to mid size stoppers. A 3" cam is also useful.
The crack opens up to take great protection.

The four bolt face climb to the right was cleaned, bolted, and lead by Jon Garlough and followed by the three other climbers who were in on the FA of Adanedi. The climb is fairly sustained at 5.8, earning a 5.8+ overall rating, and three stars for quality. There is a somewhat heady run-out after the last bolt, but the route shares the same anchors and can be top roped after leading the 5.5 crack if desired.
