Description

Between the inside corner of New Box and the outside corner of Mr. Neutron is a four foot wide face. This climb goes right up the middle using no holds of the other climbs. This is a very continuous climb with almost every move a 5.7 or tougher. You could lead it by putting pro in the New Box crack. The name is because it is 37' high.

Protection

Standard rack should do it. Easy to top rope.

The smoot /ˈsmuːt/ is a nonstandard unit of length created as part of an MIT fraternity prank. It is named after Oliver R. Smoot, a fraternity pledge to Lambda Chi Alpha, who in October 1958 lay on the Harvard Bridge (between Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts), and was used by his fraternity brothers to measure the length of the bridge

Shamelessly copied from Wikipedia. :)

Also why is this marked as "Grade V"? May 29, 2014

Sorry about the (now removed) Grade V. I had a senior moment.

BTW, there is a move on the climb that is a bit of a reach. If you are only one Smoot or less in height, it might be a bit of a challenge. May 29, 2014
