Work...or be worked.  Look, it's a 5.10, but its Rope De Dope.  If you need that to be your highest tick, so be it, but don't be proud of it, and don't brag about climbing it.  Other .10b's will work you more.  If you flail here there will be more flailage on other routes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Dane Peterson figuring out the crux on Sting Like a Bee - Smith Rock

 



 

 

This was actually one of my first 5.10's I ever did.  It has some quality moves around a sweet flake.  There is a small roof problem and the top has a tricky move or two.  It's not a long route, but can get a bit pumpy towards the end.

This is Dane getting worked.  This was his first 5.10 he ever attempted.  Flail on, brother.
