balancey 5.12 on rounded holds to a good rest, then 12+ funkness, including a cruxy deadpoint to a small nubbin. Very technical. Feels really hard till you have it figured out. Used to be 12d; some holds broke off and edges crumbled. 13a in the new Watts book coming out soon.

weird route, had only ever been on it in the rain. Came back this time and sent 5th try over 2 days. Such a baffling crux at first, but finally figured good beta. the climbing down low is good, but the crux is just so heinous that I can't love the route.
split my tip on my send go. Definitely the least enjoyable 13 i've done at smith (or anywhere...)

Cruxy deadpoint to a nubbin, then another deadpoint to a crimper at the anchor. (although I think the crux is getting to the pocket down lower) A precision climb!
