For once, Mark Smiley is not so 'smiley' -- he gets stuck in a chimney for over an hour (we don't blame him, it looks like it's only about 6'' wide...) in an attempt to climb The Steck Salathe in Yosemite with his wifey Janelle who had this to say, "In seven years of marriage I've never seen him this mad." The Steck Salathe is an uber classic route in the Yosemite Valley. It is 16 pitches of pure wide crack climbing. Watch as Mark and Janelle Smiley tackle another classic climb of North America. Mark does not fare very well in the squeeze chimney, and it gets ugly, fast. The very wide and very narrow cracks on the Steck Salathe Route are a true classic. Right in the heart of Yosemite Valley, Sentinel Rock towers above Camp 4. Watch Mark and Janelle Smiley as they make their way up this 16 pitch climb, hoping to make it to the top before dark.
