One of the best 5.11s at Smith. It's well worth the hike.

If this route alone is not enough to entice you, there's a new variation to E Type Jag called "E Type Fag" that begins up E-Type, but heads left, around the big roof.

Watch for a bucketload of poison ivy on the approach. There is a fun 5.9 just to the left as well.

Best 11a at smith! The hike is worth it for this route alone.

Jeff bolted the easier left variant partly because he was tired of climbers on E-Type skirting over there and skipping the crux. I think he hoped the separate bolt line would help highlight that section as off-route.
