Easy moves on a slab gain the base of a steep headwall with an obvious hueco. Undercling the hueco, make a long reach to a distant edge and then finish up past a short section of crack.

The crux is fairly reachy, and shorter climbers may find the route to be harder than indicated or simply not be able to make the requisite reach.


This route is on the far right side of the wall and located directly across from the route Smokin' the Rock.


4 bolts, chain anchors

Climbed it with difficulty at 5'6". 5'8' and 5'10" climbers used the exact same beta but had a noticeably easier time. Sep 8, 2015

Thought this was a pretty decent route, I am 6'3" so can't comment about the height thing, 10c felt fair. Maybe 10d, I guess. Nov 17, 2014
Just Climbed this....I'm 5'6" and the crux feels 11a/b. Had to use a single dime-edge crimp to dyno off, to gain those "reachy edges" that normal size people would use.

The other guys with me were 5'10" and taller, they said 10c feels sandbagged.

Crappy edges, but fun moves. May 21, 2013
