Climb Or Die was COMPLETELY RE-EQUIPPED Sept 2012. Old hardware was extremely rusty and route was very dirty. Route has brand new stainless and all loose rock and debris has been removed.
This rock climb comes highly recommended by this route equipper, despite the route's previous, dirty reputation.
Climb big, moderate moves on big holds to the bulge. Get hyper technical and powerful to pull the crux. Enjoy moderate and exposed climbing to the chains.
Located between "Arachnid Tendencies" and "Talking With God."
6 bolts plus chains. please use your own gear for toprope.

whew - youve got to work pretty hard to earn your 12c merit badge on this one. the first two bolts are just far apart enough that you get a healthy dose of ground fall potential (while climbing chossy rock), and the crux sequence is a tricky, powerful couple of pulls from crappy holds. this thing gave me a tweaked finger when nothing else has for a year. it's a decent route with a couple of classic, red-wing-atypical moves on it. i just wish someone would replace the very rusty bolts.

I remember a tricky sequence of knee scums helped me a lot.

Can't wait to get back on this route. Thanks, Tyler.
Update: got back on route, and I really enjoyed it. Tyler really did a great job with this one- moved one of the bolts to a better position, replaced the rest, and cleaned god knows how many acres of garbage off of it. Still kind of sandy, but I think this is a good 12c for RW, and one of the only ones seasonable for summer.
