Description

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

Start for Smiley Face then go right after first pitch.

Protection

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.
