Start on right side of the face near the 5.6 chimney and carefully move to the left onto the ledge. Alternatively, you can also do a direct bouldery start onto the ledge (more fun). Follow the very thin crack to the ledge and finish up either side to top out. Smile for the crowds (hence the name). Crux is definitely the face leading up to the ledge...some very delicate, balancey "5.8" (by DL standards) moves.


Unnamed Route 57 in the Swartling guidebook. Rap or hike down the sketchy access gully. If you rappel, expect an audience due to the lookout nearby.


Solid boulders and trees for TR anchor. Small stuff to lead. Like Cracker Jack, it has a ledge near the top that could be used to split up the climb into 2 pitches, but the second pitch would only be about 10 feet.
