Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


Climb the shallow curving dihedral on the left of the arete. Thin laybacking and delicate footwork with some tricky gear. There is much to despair.

Route is on the Upper Crag X wall, head up the new staircase that starts the new smoke bluff connector trail just past Lower Crag X. Upper Crag X area is only 100 feet from the main smoke bluffs trail.

Starts on the right-most arete on the upper crag X wall, near the trail.


Small nuts and small cams. Bolt anchors.
