Same face as Show Me the Kind, but uses large sloper right hand just over the roof and over to the right. Also can use the big foot over to the right.


Show Me The Kind boulder, uses holds eliminated from that problem.

Normally I think eliminatry is BS but I guess since this is well-established, I'll put it up here. FA anyone? Kieck?

Pretty positive the FA of SMTK was Paul Jones, not sure if it would be different for the eliminate.

Maybe I'm just the first one to admit I wimped out on SMTK and did Show Me Mercy! Paul may have done it before me.

On another note (and a very knit picky one at that)- I don't know if I would call SMM an eliminate since it adds a hold to SMTK to make it easier. It definitely is a variation and it can be debated whether or not it deserves its own name. I just gave it a name for myself out of frustration one day, told a few people who picked it up and shared it on this website when others called it SMTK. I guess my opinion is giving it its own name distinguishes it from SMTK.

Sorry, I meant SMTK was the eliminate, not SMM, didn't mean to make a big deal out of it. They're both fun.

Sorry Chris. I was having a stupid moment. You're right, they are both fun and I do them almost everytime I go to the North Shore or head up to the Monolith area.
