Description:

The first pitch of the famed "Smoke Bluff Connection", Mosquito sees as much traffic as any climb in Squamish. Excellent jamming and laybacking up a perfect crack and over a crux bulge leads to easier terrain above. Lower down at the chains or continue upwards along the Connection.

5 out of 5 stars Way harder than 5.8 when wet

Fun route. Does not feel like 5.8 at all when wet. I would probably rate it 5.9 even when it's dry.
