Start off on a beautiful and solid lichen covered slab that leads to a juggy dihedral. Once you leave the dihedral, begin the crux which makes you climb above your bolt on 5.10 moves. A great lead for people beginning to lead 5.10. Falls are save and moves a obvious once past the slab.


Furthest left route on the llama wall/smith rock summit group. Starts off on a obvious bolted slab

The rock on this route is a bit rough in places, not unlike the rest of this area. But much of it will get better as more folks climb it. Still some great moves though. The crux near the top makes this route feel more like 5.10c/d.

I believe I placed 13 draws on this route, so make sure to take plenty.

When my group climbed this, the slab at the bottom was moss covered and the rock quality in the dihedral left something to be desired. There were some fun moves and the changing nature of the climbing gave the route quite a sense of adventure.
