Start up the corner by using high feet and laying back the corner crack. It actually felt easier than it looked from the ground. Once above the corner use big holds to make bigger moves between bolts. The flow of the climb is really fun and offers up a nice change from climbing smaller holds. The hardest and oddest part of the route was mid-route where you have to traverse right away from the climbing line to clip a bolt, only to move back to your starting stance left to continue climbing up. Lower off of fixed draws. This felt more like a gym climb than a Smith Rock climb, lots of fun.
