Description 

This is the start for the "Smoke Bluff Connection".

Handjam and lieback to a good ledge, if it were only longer it would be the best 5.8 out there?

Patience: You'll need it when you see the line for this climb.

A great intro to Squamish...

For full value, continue on as for Smoke Bluff Connector.

Good route, but even better because it leads in to Phlegmish Dance. A great one-two punch.

A great 5.8, was one of my first leads at Squamish. If you are a new trad leader, this is a little tricky near the bottom where it is also polished. Be careful and find the rests and protection. There may be better first 5.8's to lead.
