5 out of 5 stars fun

Probably my favorite route at the grade. The lieback crux is indeed tricky compared to the other routes around it.

3 out of 5 stars A little harder version of dancer

This route felt like a little harder version of dancer. I thought the bolt spacing/positioning was a little weird. Clipping the first shared bolt with dancer towards the top of the route involves a bit more of a stretch and rope drag than it probably should considering the other routes around it.

4 out of 5 stars fun

Good fun movements at the grade with closely spaced bolts. Although with a name like "Dancer" I expected it to be more balance intensive than it was.

5 out of 5 stars Good intro trad multi-pitch

Totally a newbs dream trad lead. It takes gear everywhere, has a million belay ledges, and is never hard anywhere.

3 out of 5 stars fine warm up

The low angle slab gets you into thinking about where to place your feet in the absence of tape. I liked it.

4 out of 5 stars footwork is key

This one doesn't have the jugs like the one next to it. The associated movements are correspondingly more interesting but not particularly challenging. It was quite good.

4 out of 5 stars fun

This climb's crux is right on the ground. I enjoyed the way it progressed from a harder start to an easy finish. It's probably one of my favorite routes at Smith.
