Living the Dream is a variation to Love, Honor, and Belay. It shares the same start and finish, but does a fun hand traverse in the middle. Slightly easier than Love, Honor, and Belay, but still technical and physical.

Start as for Love, Honor, and Belay, at the right edge of a slab. This is just left of Tonto, and 15' right of Cornered.

Climb the slab, clipping a single bolt along the way. From a good stance near the top of the slab, place a piece of gear in a horizontal crack located between a good ledge and an upper wall. Move left on the ledge to the left side of the wall. Clip a second bolt, and hand traverse back right to an upward pointing flake (which on its right side accepts small cams). Enter a steep dihedral (which accepts small-to-medium-sized cams). Climb the dihedral, clip a top bolt and exit right just below a chockstone to the anchor. Lower from hooks.


At the right edge of a slab, just left of Tonto, and 15' right of Cornered.


A selection of cams from #0.3 Camalot to #3 Camalot. 3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks. Anchor shared with Love, Honor, and Belay.
