The farthest right route on the lower wall of the Pleasure Palace felt soft for a 5.9 at Smith. Some bigger holds pepper the climb and make it an enjoyable route. Beware of a few holds near the top that are loose, have your belayer wear a helmet. This is one of the longer climbs in the area.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
