A great start to Trezlar or a fun climb by itself. Classic knob pulling at a friendly grade.

Sling up the 3rd bolt if you want to kill the drag. Take a rest on the traverse. Bolt 6 is the crux. Clip and move. Super fun climb.

We climbed Cosmos a few weeks back. The route was balancy and fun. However, the anchor bolts were both LOOSE! They worked for a static repel, but I would not recommend them for TR (or more repels). I reported it to the Smith Rock staff and hopefully they will be replaced soon.

The anchor bolts aren't noticeably loose now.

Beta tip - getting to the third bolt is easier if you move right before moving up, though the chalk currently indicates more people move up first and then traverse right.
