A bouldery low crux leads to a nice technical finger crack.


The route starts on the upper tier of the smoke bluff wall.


Standard rack to 3/4 in.

Might be easier than .10b if you're taller. Jul 6, 2009

I think this is more of a .10a climb as Squamish Guide suggests. This grade would be appropriate for this gem of a climb, even for shorter ppl like me@5'7'' :) as the climb eases off after the bouldery start. Jun 21, 2012

I imagine it helps to be tall for the start, but I still wouldn't call the opening moves 10a. When compared to other local benchmarks for the grade (p1 of exasperator, the zip) this is certainly a step up in difficulty. Felt harder than the start to seasoned in the sun to me. Difficulties definitely fade after the first 10 feet, but the climbing is still very fun. Jul 10, 2013

Don't be worried about having enough cams, I only placed two and used nuts for the rest of the route. May 23, 2014
at 5'4" i found the start to be extremely puzzling. short person beta:

reach your right hand around the side to find two small sidepulls, then put your left hand in the shallow crack and bear hug the rock up until you can reach the hand jam in the first deep part of the crack. Aug 1, 2015

I'm 5'6" and I seriously struggled with the start. I know a lot of people will disagree, but for me it was harder than a 10-. If I was wearing brand new Miura's with a crispy new toe, it would have helped. Even though I struggled with the first few feet, the climb is awesome! Jul 17, 2017

Even after a week of dry weather, the start was quite wet. Nothing a little cloth couldn't fix Dec 11, 2017
