This is a really great addition to Smooth Op! Four stars in my opinion. Apr 1, 2012

I tried this a bit today, but couldn't get the nerve to top out. With Todd's beta this is likely V6 with the difficulty mainly coming from moving into Smooth Operator. However, I found that the most obvious and easiest way is to avoid the big move up right to the pinch, and instead move left to a jug and then up into the stand start. To me this was the most logical, but doesn't add much difficulty. It does however add a few cool, if somewhat dabby moves. Mar 31, 2012
One of the great mysteries of DL bouldering has been solved. Check out the picture for accurate info on where Bud White starts. Glad that this problem won't be lost anymore! Feb 10, 2012
