Start with the undercling in the cave. Make a big move to a blind crimp with the left, confure some magic trickery to reach the slopers and crimps and eventually crawl your way to safety from the Desolation of Smaug.


On the ocean side of the dragon boulder.


Pad or two


Is this that rig you showed me long ago? Hidden down kinda on the top backside? With the super low start? Jun 5, 2014

Hmmm, not sure. That might have been 'The Highway' (that one is pretty hidden, on the back 'mountain side' of the Spine), near OG Arete. This one is on the Ocean side, the front side of the Dragon boulders.

Coming out the right side of the cave is still open project, has two options and definitely goes. Probably in the 8-9 range? Feb 28, 2015

Yeah, the rock can be a little crusty, but sometimes that's what life is about. The the moves are fun and the view is awesome, with the topout leading right to a sitting throne. Mar 25, 2015

New low start to 'Smaug':

Grade stays the same, but now feels more solid, and gives you a nice little pump leading into the crux sequence. Mar 7, 2016
