Climb the obvious roof to the left of the waterfall/dam thing. It goes up big positive holds to a crack. Pulling the roof is the hardest part, but once you get the big pocket it's over.


Left of waterfall/damn, or left of flakes of wrath.


7 bolts, shuts. There is also a bolt that is holding on a hold for this route.

Very fun route! Jug haul through the roof to a series of crux moves exiting onto the face. I thought the rating of .11c was dead on. Highly recommended Feb 14, 2011
super pumpy route on the crux, but true to its rating. once you find solid holds outside of the roof your golden. a classic roof problem of QC no doubt Apr 9, 2013

I think I have climbed smoking guns more than any other climb. I thnk the firsttime i redpointed it was in 96. Since then its been my measuring stick as to how well or bad i am climbing.Jim and Eric did a great job with it! Its my favorite route at the grade in QC. Jan 31, 2015
