Beginning of the route...

Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


This route is different from the norm at Smith. Expect good jugs and pockets the whole way. The crux would probably be the pump from the overhang.


The only Bolted route on the south side of the ampitheater or about 50 yards uphill and left of the start of Barred Reality.


9 Bolts. Anchors. Rap or continue to summit.

Just lead this route this last weekend. It's a really fun route with some unique feeling balance-y moves. Definitely out of the norm for Smith routes. Finished it up with the second two pitches of the cave route. Good times!
