Climbing Thoroughfare actually, but you can see th...


The left side of Thoroughfare. An eliminate, sure, but a fun one and the right crack of thoroughfare doesn't seem tempting when you are on this climb. Climb up the left corner/crack of Thoroughfare, starting in the corner and avoiding the right hand crack. Where the cracks merge and the crimps begin, it joins Thoroughfare. Sequency and burly crux with poor feet.

I've heard this climb referred to both as "Lake Shore Drive" and as "LSD", which I had assumed referred to lysergic acid diethylamide. On the Extremist's Guide, it's also referred to as Left Side Direct.


Left of Thoroughfare, same TR setup.


TR or DL rack.

Finally did this clean (on TR) today. Took more tries than anything I've ever done before, which is a little nuts. Definitely not my style. A bunch of tries spread over several years. Anyone else get on this? Feel harder than advertised? I just need to get stronger?
