Description

The first 5.11 at Smith, Minotaur is insecure and technical. It starts with a low angle layback, and then gets a little funky with sloping holds, crappy feet, and a couple of long reaches. As quickly as you hit the crux, it is over, and you finish in a wide crack and a corner seam above.
Watts gives it 2 stars, but I thought it was more fun than that, and really exciting for the history.

Location

Same toprope location as Labyrinth, the anchor is to the climber's right of the Virgin Slayer, on the right side of the Textbooks.

Protection

Thin gear to lead. TR also works great, but is only one bolt, so back it up with the other bolted anchor (ten feet back).
