Start on far right, climb the easy shallow alcove to the large black bulge and the crux moves. Finish up easy terrain. Basically it's a V7 on a 5.7 route

The crux of this route is hardly v7. It's v5 at the absolute most. This would definitely be a better route if the rock were better after the crux, but for more power oriented climbers this pitch would be one of the better ones for the grade at smith. There are no tweaky nubbins here. Also, the move going into the "strenuous clip" will feel harder for anyone shorter than 5'9"
