This is a fun well protected route. Vertical face climbing up a beautiful quartz dike leads past 4 bolts. A reach around to the right and a short crack to the top. It is just outside the east end of the Cling or Fling Corridor or the upper end of the Brits in Drag Corridor.
In addition to the 4 bolts you need one mid sized cam (2") for pro at the top and runners for the anchor.
Dang, those shorts are short!

A fun route; remember it needing a bit more traffic to clean it up. I'd say 2 out of 5 stars. Make sure to do Say No To Jugs (10d/11a) which lies to the right (opposite side of the corridor) from Lively Yourself... In fact it is just visible to the right and behind AJ, in the photo of the route.

Best to approach this route via the narrow Cling or Fling corridor, or a short scramble right of Brit Corridor proper.

This thing still needs a lot of traffic to clean up (particularly for the feet), and even then it's not going to be anything special. One of those face routes that's more painful than hard due to the extremely grainy holds. Follows a cool looking dike feature, but not a route I'd recommend unless you're already there and trying to fill out the day. Say No To Jugs is much better IMO.

Led this again this past weekend. The route felt trickier this time around... maybe some holds have come off since '07? The topout led to a confrontation with a beautiful owl that startled me as much as I startled her in her cozy little corner. Fun moves.
