A good climb for the grade.

Romp up big jugs to a thought provoking move left at the top.

My favorite 5.8 at Smith. Fun moves, solid rock, interesting crux. Worth the hike!

A tough crux for the grade, much harder than the rest of the route.

i think my only fall on a 5.8. I remember thinking it would be cruiser, but botched the crux sequence. a good route.

Nice 5.8. Well protected. Crux is moving around the left side of a bulge (bolt 6-8). Be mindful of keeping the rope from getting behind your leg.
