Local knowledge counts for a lot in climbing, so when Utah hard man and prolific new router Jay Smith recommended 'Fine Jade' (5.11a) to the Smiley's, they knew that they just had to climb it. With perfect splitter cracks on the first two pitches and superb face climbing above, 'Fine Jade' more than lives up to its name. The approach is short, the line stunning and the climbing encapsulates all that is best about Utah's desert towers. This was Janelle and Mark's first route back after a Winter off from climbing and after watching this video, it's hard to imagine a more perfect way for them to have kicked off their season.
