Halloween at Smith
Another Morning Glory moderate. This is a good alternative to the adjacent 5 Gallon Buckets if there are people on it. It is margially more difficult than its neighbor with a crux coming towards the top.
The route is found between 5 Gallon Buckets and Gumby on the huecoed section of the Morning Glory Wall.
Route is protected by 6 bolts and a bolted anchor
Getting off the ground. Definitely no huecos here...

Fun climb. Slightly more difficult than five gallon buckets with some good edging up top. The new guide rates it .10a.

Really fun climb. Looks like it's rated a 5.9 if you start at 5 Gallon Buckets and move right (re: smithrock.com route guide and the watts guidebook), but if you climb straight up from under the anchors, the consensus seems to be a 5.10a (which I agree with). Fun start (when you get it). :)
It also seems like with the popularity of that particular area, it's good karma to climb the routes straight up, leaving bolts for the other routes free.

This is a great route if you're looking for something a little spicier than 5 Gallon Buckets. It gets the edging and crimping game warmed up for the rest of the delicate climbing in the Park.

Many people are confusing LOTP with The Outsiders (thanks to the original posting of this route). The Outsiders is the route that is adjacent to 5GBs - not LOTP! The pic on this page that the climber is on is that of The Outsiders. LOTP is one route right of The Outsiders & 2 routes right of 5GBs. LOTP is every bit a 10a. I wouldn't argue with a 10a/b rating. LOTP is significantly harder than 5GBs.

Good post from RodJ. The start is a bit tricky. I had to do a different sequence than the others I was with to get off the ground.

The series of crimps up top are tricky if you get sucked into going for the jugs out right. Very solid 5.10.
