Power Smart is steady, technical face climbing, good at the grade, and bold enough to keep you sweating. Keep your wits about you, and it's a great climb.


Power Smart ascends the face between Flat Battery and Magnet (the left-most and second-to-left 5.4 crack systems) on the central Sugarloaf wall. Look for a vertical white streak at the top to confirm you're in the right spot.


Single rack, including some small gear. Protection is thin and far-between on this climb, unless one uses the adjoining major crack systems. Climbers can use the bolt anchors right or left of the top-out if they're not already in use.
