This one is worth doing if you are in the area for the Cave Route but not worth the hike alone.

An unusual route for Smith, overhanging jugs.

Swing your way up the overhanging monkey bars to an anchor.


In the Cave Route alcove (see that route for approach). There are three short overhanging sport climbs here, this is the left most and more difficult of the three.




More like a 5.10 cruiser with a cruxy move to the anchors, unless you clip from below. Super fun route though! Definitely worth doing if in the area though! Aug 27, 2016

Very easy 5.11a. More like 5.10c if you clip the anchors from below. 11a if you try to get above the anchor for easy clipping. Dec 31, 2014

I've seen many '11' climbers fail at the top. They didn't think that it was so easy. I do think that it is easier than 'Magic Light'. Jun 20, 2014

Definitely the easiest 11a I've ever climbed. Sep 16, 2012
If walking on broken glass is the leftmost of the three and is 11a what are the ratings on the other two? Feb 24, 2008
