Looking up Casual Affair, crazy lead Dave!


Initially, make tenuous moves straight up to the end of a thin seam (difficult to protect) before stepping left and up to a bolt. Face climbing above the bolt leads to discontinuous right-slanting finger cracks. A flared hand crack exists for the final 10' to the top. Rappel from the two bolt anchor.


This varied and fun climb begins off of a boulder on the left end of the Safety First Rock (40' right of the Future Games formation).


The majority of this climb can be protected with small stoppers and 1/2 inch to 3 inch cams. One bolt (3/8") is present about 20' from the bottom. Two bolts (3/8") on top can be used for an anchor.
