Fun route with a variety of movement for a 5.9, mostly focusing on fun body tension until the third bolt. Excellent exposure. Eases off quite a bit after the 3rd bolt, but the moves are none the less interesting. May 5, 2013

Very fun lead. After clipping the first bolt you are pretty much safe Sep 3, 2014

First two bolts are all the action. After that it eases up considerably. Mar 26, 2017

By running it out to the P1 anchor of Thin Air, you can link into an awesome bolted multipitch! 4 pitches including SMK. Jul 28, 2017

Can reach the first bolt by climbing up the gully. The crux is traversing over the corner, and is the only hard part of the route; the feet are slopey and not much friction. Once you’re past that the climbing is much easier. Large chicken heads typical of Smith. Some slab. If you go toward the right at the top it’s 5.easy. Oct 29, 2018
