Description [Suggest Change]

This is a fun route that begins with the first pitch of Smiley Face, then traverses right on a easy 5.7ish terrain. The third and money pitch goes up a bolted slab before getting into a dihedral/roof formation.
Rap the route Smiley Face as the final pitch is a rope stretcher and even an 80m won't get you back to the second pitch anchors.

Location [Suggest Change]

Start for Smiley Face then go right after first pitch.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Quickdraws and standard Castle Rocks rack with hand size pieces. The dihedral looks wide, but will often take smaller (read hand) pieces in the back.
