4 out of 5 stars THE STORY

This problem's original name is soul cleanser. Here is the story. Back in the day before this line had been climbed, the climber who was working on it the hardest/wanted it the most (i forget the name) was very close but was then injured. People asked the climber if they should hold off climbing the line or not and he said they could do it, as long as they named the problem "soul cleanser". Smart Tom was the first person to climb the problem, so this is why it is also called smart tom. I hope that answers your question.

5 out of 5 stars ?

Everyone says this is called Smart Tom; if so then what is the true name of the other problem named Smart Tom & why is it that there is a Soul Cleanser Boulder with this same problem listed there as well??????
