Description:

Immediately right of The Outsiders. Also starts in the large huecos and has thinner edging up higher. Rated 5.9 in the guidebook but enough of the edges up high have crumbled away to qualify as a 5.10 now. It is a bit harder than The Outsiders to the left.

4 out of 5 stars fun route

This was my third route at Smith. Definitely 10a rating seems appropriate. High first bolt, but other than that it's all there.

3 out of 5 stars sandbag

Felt harder than most of the few other 10s I climbed at Smith. I guess I'd have to say 10c? Hard start and gets hard at the top again. Fun movement up high on tiny holds.

5 out of 5 stars Huecos

Crux at the very start on edges with a very easy hueco mid section that turns to more edges near the end
