Description 

The whole line is pretty sustained the whole way through. The physical crux comes low with a throw to a huge bucket. Technical demands remain high though as the top half turns to balancey, crimpy moves. Anchors seem hard to clip for shorter folk, but if you made it to the top you'll figure it out.


Location 

Pretty much on the right side of Picnic Lunch wall. It's right in front of the trail that leads up misery ridge.


Protection 

Just bolts...

My favorite route of the grade at smith. Amazing movement! Two-finger pocket for clipping up and right of the anchors.

Bolt #3 on this route, from what i remembered, would be really hard to place cause you're in the middle of the crux. Much easier for the climber clipping a pre-placed draw. Any amount of thuggery can be avoided with some crafty heel hooking and some balance.

Five Easy is probably the best power endurance 12a at Smith. The moves just before each of the rests are the hardest, making it a fantastic challenge and 'fitness' route
