Description:

Shares start with Overboard and breaks left at the 3rd bolt. Thin technical crux after the 4th bolt, the rest of the route has relatively big holds but gives a good pump, making it an extremely popular warm-up for harder climbs. There is a continuation/2nd pitch (12b)for those interested, however it never sees any traffic.

5 out of 5 stars Great route

Really enjoyed this. Was my introduction to Smith, as light was fading and it was getting cold. My hands were numb and couldn't feel the crimps on the crux. Great climbing through crux and above, as well. Nice!
