Offering a very similar experience to Cosmos on it's left, enjoy nobs and nubbins throughout this face climb. Delicate moves are the name of the game, but if you’ve learned anything about Smith by now it’s that you are going to have to trust that god damn nubbin and get moving. With the many ascents this wall has seen, all the holds are solid. Screaming Yellow Zonkers offers up a bit of a longer climb than Cosmos but also adds a little spice at the very beginning of the climb. While the moves to the first clip aren’t hard, they also aren’t obvious just by looking at the rock, and they wouldn’t offer up a pleasant landing if you were to blow it. Once on the face, the climb offers a bit more variety than Cosmos even though the majority of holds are small face holds. Gaining the chains at the top is a bit awkward and keeps you working to the very end. Do this climb.

The Petzl Sama is a good all-around harness for sport, trad, and multi-pitch climbs. It offers up low profile gear loops, good padding, and non-adjustable yet comfortable leg loops while still not being overly bulky or heavy. Great for beginners or experienced climbers.
