Description 

Unprotected 5.6 climbing for ~20 feet to the first bolt. Crux is pretty low, roughly at the 3rd or fourth bolt on small crimps and sidepulls. Place a couple pieces below the bulge and pull the airy roof. Killer steep climbing to the anchors on pockets and big edges.

Location 

Starts off the same ledge/belay as Smack Daddy.

Protection 

11 bolts, gear, lower-off anchors.

I tried to do Super Smack 5.12b that links Visions of Impalement into Blitzkreig. Getting onto Blitzkreig is quite a runnout and some wild air pulling through the juggy roof to the bolt. Pretty cool! I thought I had traversed too far left into a harder route and bailed, thinking of lots of rope stretch over sharp edges. Wild link up for sure!
