Smell my finger

Description 

Better than it looks, and quite fun at that. Climbs some delicate 5.10ish lower angle rock through a few bolts before continuous 5.11- climbing punches through the upper headwall. Fun climbing on mostly good holds.


Location 

Located in a cluster or four or so climbs around the corner maybe 40 yards left of Purple Galaxy. You must pass an obvious bolted step left facing corner about half way between Purple Galaxy and the cluster or routes. SMF is the left-most line of the routes (12b,11c,11d,Smell My Finger 11c).


Protection 

9 or 10 bolts to anchors.

Great line! After a technical crux around the 8th-9th bolt, prepare for a pump crux right through the next 5-6 bolts all the way to the anchors at 100 ft. This line is about as good as it gets!
