Description

One of the best moderate sport lines on Basalt in Smith. Start by soloing a little pedestal, clip a bolt and enjoy the fun sequences, stem, crimp, jug, repeat! You can top rope 4 5.12s off this route too! At the top you can go up/right or left.

Location

After passing the bucket arete of E-Type Jag, this is the next heavily chalked route, it has a moderate clearing underneath and starts with a 20 foot pillar, above this is the stemming box of Naxis.

Not only does this share the anchors with Gapers on a Tangent, Unique Monique, Up Country, and Groove Cat, but you can also get onto a ledge system to the left that you can walk all the way over to Feminazis. There are 2 bolts to protect this traverse. I wouldn't be surprised if you could also access Blame it on Rio & Peruvian Skies. Jan 16, 2018
