Joan Bertini leading Smokin' the Rock

Description 

Thin and somewhat awkward moves off the ground are the crux and once past the 2nd bolt it's gets much easier as you climb to the top of the initial section. Higher, move onto another section of rock passing a crack (Black Powder) and finish with a spectacular lieback/mantle directly onto the ledge with anchors.

Location 

This is the bolted route just right of Black Powder and left of Finger Crimping Good.

Protection 

5 bolts, chain anchors
