Description

Better than it looks, and quite fun at that. Climbs some delicate 5.10ish lower angle rock through a few bolts before continuous 5.11- climbing punches through the upper headwall. Fun climbing on mostly good holds.

Location

Located in a cluster or four or so climbs around the corner maybe 40 yards left of Purple Galaxy. You must pass an obvious bolted step left facing corner about half way between Purple Galaxy and the cluster or routes. SMF is the left-most line of the routes (12b,11c,11d,Smell My Finger 11c).

Protection

9 or 10 bolts to anchors.

Great line! After a technical crux around the 8th-9th bolt, prepare for a pump crux right through the next 5-6 bolts all the way to the anchors at 100 ft. This line is about as good as it gets! Aug 30, 2009
This route is of a similar length to the routes to the left as I recall (90-100'). I remember using nearly all of the 60m rope I used to establish this route to get down from the anchors. As always, regardless of rope length, route length or energy levels, close the system- i.e. tie in one end of the rope to you and the other end to your belayer- or - tie a well dressed stopper knot on the end to stop the rope at the belay device. Keep it safe and crank like a disease! Oct 18, 2017
