A great start to Trezlar or a fun climb by itself. Classic knob pulling at a friendly grade. May 13, 2007

Sling up the 3rd bolt if you want to kill the drag. Take a rest on the traverse. Bolt 6 is the crux. Clip and move. Super fun climb. Mar 23, 2011
We climbed Cosmos a few weeks back. The route was balancy and fun. However, the anchor bolts were both LOOSE! They worked for a static repel, but I would not recommend them for TR (or more repels). I reported it to the Smith Rock staff and hopefully they will be replaced soon. May 10, 2015

The anchor bolts aren't noticeably loose now.

Beta tip - getting to the third bolt is easier if you move right before moving up, though the chalk currently indicates more people move up first and then traverse right. Jul 13, 2017

Just top roped and took some laps with buddies on this today, super fun climb. love the knobs. Great for building upper body, tendons in the fingers, and critical and creative foot placement. Had to smear my right foot before the crux haha, lots of fun today! Highly recommend Mesa Verdes Wall. I know I'll be back.. Jul 9, 2018

Cool knobs, was reminiscent more of granite feldspar knob climbs I’ve done than anything else at Smith, trust your feet and you’ll never tire your arms out. Anchor seemed fine. Nov 10, 2018
