Similar in the feel of the rock and the movement to Amelia Dearheart, Taylor Brook is a decent 5.7. This one holds a bit more lichen and moss, though.
After leading the two routes to its right, TR this one off of the anchors for Amelia Dearheart.
It's too bad that it lost its bolts. It's better than other routes at Smith, and the more easy routes, the better. It spreads out the packs, and allows the area to continue evolving. Maybe there was a good reason(?).

We weren't really sure how this line even counts as a separate route. It is so close to Amelia that its hard to imaging two climbers side by side. Once you are on the slab above any differences seem even further contrived. If you are having a hard time finding all three routes on this slab it's because one of them is just a left handed wander above the slab.
