Smooth Sole Wall - Right Side Rock Climbing
Don't kid yourself on this route: It IS SERIOUS.
This is the more popular side of the Smooth Sole Wall and is home to several single pitch classics including Mickey Mantle
(5.8 R), The Fiend
(5.9 R) and Ultimatum
(5.10b R), all of which offer great climbing on excellent rock with some runouts.
The climbing here is primarily runout slab climbing on excellent rock, and while it's a great place to hone your slab technique and lead head, it's probably best to be solid at the grade when leading these routes.
From where the trail first meets the rock (Buttress of Cracks), walk left, continue along the Sunshine Face, and start up the broad gully. Before long, exit to the left, along a ledge, and then either tunnel through a flake or scramble up along its top. You are now at the base of the right side of the Smooth Sole Wall. A deep chimney (Chatsworth Chimney) splits the formation. For most of the routes to the right of the chimney, you can descend via a 90' rappel from bolts. Chatsworth Chimney and all routes to the left finish at the top of the rock - you can scramble down along either side.
