yes--to bolt or not to be is close by in the dihedrals of smith rock

you're right...it's aerial--i'm pissed at myself for not recognizing it! of course, the climber is using that big flake that is a little off route

god do i have painful memories of that route...it is one hard 12a (especially after the nice, short pockety routes in wild iris!)

4 out of 5 stars great photo--but steepest 12a? go to column of the giants in sonora--a 12a so steep you stare downwards at the draws (i s**t you not!)

0 out of 5 stars yeah...it's a little lower

4 out of 5 stars wait...how the heck would that be possible unless you fell inward towards the wall...and how woule he do that on an overhanging arete? are you sure you didn't backclip?
