Description:

This bulging water groove in the center of the wall tests your technical skills. There might be more attractive chunks of stone at Smith, but the deceptively tricky moves and solid rock make it worth doing.

2 out of 5 stars Quality Stone?

Still looking for it.. Wierd rock. I will say it's unique though and worth a climb since you are already looking at the base of it. Snapped a hold the size of a novel at the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Unique

Not like most other Smith climbs. Technical moves on super grippy (thankfully) rock. There is a nice selection of climbs up in this area, well worth hiking up for!
