Great movement on small crisp edges make this an enjoyable route if your comfortable on slightly spicy 10.b

Carefully make your way up to the first bolt (a fall would be ugly) then crimp your way up good edges to an anchor next to the anchor on Peking


Just left of the crack on pitch one of Peking, two routes over from Moscow.




i agree with bryson's description. not a great choice for someone's first 10b due to the hard moves over a terrible landing just to reach the first bolt. but that memory is quickly erased by the cerebral and sustained climbing that follows. one of the best 10b sport climbs at smith. Jun 20, 2006
Great moves on sound tuff. Not so great protection through the first thin crux off the ground. Over-all awesome route! Not recommended for the budding 5.10 without stick clipping but can be TR'd from Peking. Jan 4, 2012

Fun route on some small crimps, with a good rest spot midway up. One of my favorite 10b's at Smith. Oct 10, 2012
Four stars for sure. Best 10b at smith? Super smithy. Thin,delicate and engaging. Apr 10, 2014

Perhaps a bolt has been added at the beginning, but the only bad fall now would be clipping the 2nd bolt, which is made from a good stance on good holds. Sep 22, 2014
