Pitch 4 of Smashmouth.

Smashmouth 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  UT : Zion National Park : The Confluence
Worthwhile route, well set up with modern anchors, can be climbed and descended with one 60m rope.P1. 5.11a, Short, stout tight hands leads to easier climbing.P2. 5.10c, Tricky bolted face leads to easier hand/ finger crack.P3. 5.10b, Beautiful fingers and hands supplemented with plentiful face holds.P4. 5.11a, More of the same, with short crux at the end protected by bristler.Note either pitch 2&3 or 3&4 could easily be linked (recommended)...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
