A great pitch that often gets used as a warm up for the 5.13s to the right on the Churning Buttress. It sees a lot of traffic, but with good reason. Typical Smith Rock crimps and pockets abound.

It's a fun route to jump on at the end of the day for one last burn on the way back to the car if nobody's on it.

The start is 15-20ft. to the right of the tree at the base of the Morning Glory wall, just around the corner from the Zebra/5 Gallon Buckets area.


8 bolts to a bolted anchor, or continue past another 5 bolts to a higher anchor.

To lower off the second set of anchors you need a 70m rope.

The rating goes up considerably with the humidity and the temperature...

Ian Cadwell just ripped off the loose flake right above the first anchors making the climb feel like 11c.

Did it to the first anchors and the crux felt pretty slippery and precarious, like I could easily blow off at any time. The locals look like they could do it blindfolded.

Similar to the other routes on the morning glory wall with extensions the crux comes immediately after the first set of anchors. A right heel maneuver can prove to be really usefel for making the first few moves after the anchors.

I don't know if this is the best place for this, but the anchor biners for the 1st pitch are very worn, probably over half way through. The groove is smooth and I felt OK rapping off of it, but it seemed worth mentioning.
