Access Issue: Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! Details


With more ascents this route will definitely get less mossy, but probably not less slick. The crux comes just after the second bolt and lasts for about five moves. A couple of moves go straight above the bolt, but then veer to your right. The upper slab is fun, but mossy. Get ready to crimp and hang on tight...Smooth Torquer is what the name implies and more stout than Rip Grip.


The first route left of Smerk.

This route has been cleaned as of 08/2010. Upper slab is climbable and first two bolts have been replaced. The first bolt is still quite high, however. It's possible to climb the first pitch of Smerk to the Smooth Torquer anchor. A new bolt has been added to the slab that is clip-able from either Smerk or Smooth Torquer to protect the runout. (Permission for new bolt granted by the FA). Aug 19, 2010
