A short, pumpy jug haul up the Honeycomb Wall high atop Aggro Gulley. 5 bolts and very un-like most other climbs at Smith Rock. The only 10a of it's kind in the park!

Descent Options:

Rap, lower on rusty chains (not recommended) or walk around.

5 out of 5 stars Best 5.10 intro lead at Smith!

If you're breaking into leading 10's, do this short route first! Get over the skinny start ledge, as it actually adds to the safety and appeal of this route. Good jugs the whole way up, solid clipping stances, and overhanging enough to make lead falls relatively safe. Also short enough to avoid pumping out from the inevitable first 5.10 lead overgripping!
