A classic problem that is a great warm-up, and a great problem to project.

Start on the short slab beneath the overhanging face. Balance/finesse your way up to the lip, gain the bucket and topout using crimps/mantel.


Off the left side of the lot. Large, square boulder, the left of the long low roof/arete of "Nemesis".


A pad or two oughta protect your ankles just fine.

Kemple's guide says v4/5. I think v3 is more accurate if perhaps generous. Really fun, classic little line. Jul 10, 2011

I'd give Pac Man a V1+ or maybe V2. I've climbed with several new climbers that have gotten it on their first day climbing ever, in tennies too. I've done it in snowboard boots,crocs as well, so as long as you know what to do its not bad at all. Super fun though, and makes it even better when people read the guide and think it's their first V4-5. May 17, 2015
Yeah, the given grades at Smuggs are definitely soft. If you see what a V3 is like at an old school area like Yosemite, Little Cottonwood, JTree, or Jenny Lake you will laugh at the grades at Smuggs. Mar 16, 2016

Awesome problem, such a cool boulder! I can see it being v4 if you're tall. Oct 10, 2016
