The start was more than tricky IMHO. The rest of the climb after that was uneventful. I felt False False Smooth As Silk was actually the better climb of the two. May 8, 2011

Agree on the assessment of a tricky start. Save a couple larger pieces (#3) for the top belay. Fun and close to the car. Nov 11, 2009

This elusive climb is now described as 35 feet right of Planetary Motion in the new Vogel guide. It is on the wide buttress that faces northwest. It's tricky to get to the start and easy to end up on what I'm calling "False False Smooth as Silk". May 8, 2009

This climb is actually on the SOUTH end of the Filipino Wall. Fun route. Walk off to climber's right, then down boulder strewn gully between the Filipino Wall and the south end of the Freeway Wall, then back to the pack at the base of the route. Jan 2, 2008
