Crime of the Century (5.11c) Squamish

Crime of the Century (5.11c) Squamish

Crime of the Century is my favorite climb in the Smoke Bluffs and it’s a real testpiece for the 5.11 climber!  It is soft in the grade, with a reachy crux down low and a techy crux up high, interpersed with consistent 5.11- climbing.  This makes a great first 5.11+ trad lead.  The secret beta for this wicked finger crack is 5 .75 cams (!!).  No kidding!  Trust me!

Oh yeah .. and don’t forget about the NO HANDS REST … :-)
