This is on the face of this the Cross Rock area. It's just short of vertical but it's a real challenge. As the name suggests, it's very smooth. As you look at it, you either wonder what you can hold onto or just think one word, smear. The route is very good for training your eye to recognize small flakes and other features that would otherwise go unnoticed. Make sure you trim your nails before this route or you can feel them peeling off your finger...the holds are that small.

I really loved this one, as this was my first 10+.
It was not a pretty sight, watching me climb it but I am looking forward to doing it again more cleanly.
Thier are also two routes on this face and they are both rated 10+. I did the one on the left.

numerous ascents in the early 70's as the date climbed menu only goes back ten years.
