Description

Big Smile is the hardest climb on the cliff to date. Lots of kneebars and heelhooks are required to manage the pump that will make most climbers arms explode. An easier steep start on big holds leads to the first crux: a funky undercling to reach a big hold in a hole (worst move of the climb). From here more steep fun climbing with good rests leads to a steep lip. Pull the lip and take a good long rest before the upper crux: a big reach to a small pinch and a small pocket. After sticking the crux move, skip the clip and make one more hard lunge to a victory jug! If you fall off the last move (which I did numerous times) you have the pleasure of being lowered through a big ants nest in the tree below! Clip the anchors and then go grab a beer lao from uli and lounge in the sun all day.

Location

In the center of the roof, marked with paint.

Protection

All bolts are equipped with permanent draws.
