i think Aya is speaking of the crack left of that route smike. it has some old webbing on it. anyway it's a Kevin Bein route and it's hard like 5.12 hard. no way is it 30feet, more like half that size

No, not that crack.

It's an area where there's a huge overhanging roof maybe 15 feet up. The crack on the right side, no, definitely not 30 feet. But the roof's sort of triangular (trapezoidal?) shaped, and I think along the left side, it's probably about that long. Very big. Anyway, it looks like the crack I'm talking about goes up in a little corner at the back of the roof about 15 feet, and you can get feet on a ramp on the left and some tiny edges on the right, then you have to make your way out to the corner on what looks like really thin fingers until a nice hand sized hole and a flake/horn that just out, then you pull the corner on a fist sized jam above, and then scramble on up. Either way, you pretty much have feet with you the whole way, although they're with you mostly on blank face... There was no old webbing on it anywhere that I could see. I looked at it, and could see how it could be done, ergo 5.11. Usually, I look at 5.12 and scratch my head.

The crack on the left looks 5.hard, mostly because I can't see any way that you can actually get to it...

And yes, beer. But the "beer" selection was dismal so I thought I'd try something new.

wow that's some pretty heavy duty beta for someone who hasn't climbed the route.

Well it's not that far off the ground and like I said, you can kind of see how it would go \:\)

I was just trying to describe it so someone could tell me about it!!!!!!!
