Chain Reaction – 5.12c
Bump right hand high on the arête. Once established mearing the left foot on the arête with a right leg wrap is key to crossing into the horn.
Only 2 days in Smith, had to climb this route! 2nd go.
Perfect last day for my first trip to smith rock! Fun punchy little line. 6th day on and psyched to put away this mega classic

Such good times!!
Tricky, Bouldery, Stout!
Finally! Tried this route my first trip to Smith and almost sent it first try. Then failed miserably each attempt afterwards. Made an extra effort today and voila! Never have to do it again. :)
Third go, didn't have much confidence but just kept making moves until I was suddenly latching the dyno. Such an iconic pitch, pleased to cap my best weekend of sport climbing with it!
Hard12c... bottom and top are super fun... middle... a little punishing
2nd try. great day, basically a squamish-style boulder problem on bolts.
5th go of the day. Sent it in headlamps and took the victory whip at anchors. My favorite sport climb yet!
Incredibly aesthetic climb with good movement. I feel it would be very hard for shorter folks. Very pumpy for such a short climb.
Classic climb, shorter than I expected.
4th go. Figured out some great short people beta :-)
Fell off the last move way too many times! Felt really gratifying send.
First time R.P.ing 12c with only 50 lumens........there's only so much daylight to work with. Def a mega line!
great route, short and powerful. Unlike most climbs at smith
Amazing route, such a classic!
An area classic
Whahooooooo!!!best route EVER.
cool knife-edge arete
Tried this once every time I went. Finally managed to get it when I hunkered down and gave it a few goes. It is amazing how hard this short little climb is. One of those aesthetic climbs that begs to you to climb it.

did in 1990, and still one of the most memorable 12C's I've ever done
It's on the old cover, what more can I say?
