The route begins at the small tree resting right above the waterline. It follows a rcackline driectly up until you hit a small ledge 15-20 feet of the ground. Traverse right slightly once you are above the ledge to grab onto a large flake. Route continues along flake and finishes with a large pocket roughly 35 feet off the waterline.


The most obvious crack line along the leftmost wall of the cave. There is a visible house at the top of the cliff.


Be sure to jump to land at least 2 feet from the base of the cliff, preferably 4-6 feet to miss any sort of ledge at 8 feet deep into the water.

I'd really like to try some deep water soloing at Smith and have scouted out some places but would love to give this one a try if I can find where exactly it is. In the description it says it's by a cave but for Smith Lake that could be a thousand different places so could you give a description of where on the lake this cave is?Like is it close to Smith Lake Park, the dam, or where?
