Description:

There isn't a single hard move on this one, and the bulk of it is made up of sustained climbing on superb edges until a move or two from the anchors. Not as polished as the other 12's at Smith.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent!!

I found this to be an excellent, sustained route with great moves and rock. No stopper moves, but expect sustained climbing and tricky clips (4th and 6th) from the moment you step onto the wall. The above clips were definitely easier to climb past and clip at thigh level. A must-do route at the grade.
