A good climb at a low grade in the heart of the park means get ready get in line! Located at the far end of The Dihedrals before the blank face of the Prophet Wall. It’s a fun climb, but much like its partner to the left, Captain Xenolith, the harder moves are within the first few clips before easing off to classic Smith Rock knobs.
Make the easy moves to the first clip and then use the rail to move right. After clipping the second bolt either feel around right or head straight up to a big positive knob that will reduce the need to make multiple moves to the third bolt. Make the clip and head on your way up some fun easy climbing to chains. This climb is a good taste for what it is like climbing at Smith Rock. At a 5.9 rating, this climb still offers up small balancy moves down low that make it much harder than any 5.9 you would find in a gym.

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.
