A very popular route at Phoenix Buttress. Easy starting moves becoming increasingly challenging as you move up the shallow dihedral. The difficulties culminate in the crux move navigating the bulge onto the slab finish.
Just left of Fred On Air, in the shallow dihedral.
Bolts with top rap anchors.

I found this to be a really fun route. The crux comes just at the right place at the top and makes a great finish.
This route isn't in the main Smith guidebook.

I enjoyed this route more than Phoenix. It starts out easy than becomes steeper and more technical half way up or so then stays on you until the anchors. I didn't find it to be as sharp as the new Select book describes.

First climb ever at Smith. Fun and engaging at the top.

Straight up fun! The rock is a little sharper than it is over on Morning Glory Wall.

Easily the best climb on the Phoenix wall.
