My Significant Other.

Temporary closures near Fiscal Cliff: May-July 2014 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Squeeze, crimp, and slap your way up the right side arete. Underclings, gastons, slopers, and crimps await your fingers with steeper-than-it-looks angles to keep it interesting. Continue all the way along the arete and up over the nose - reaching the mouth of the Guppy for a thank-god, fish-hook jug.

Location 

Climb the arete on the right side of the Guppy formation.

Protection 

5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor on the west face with rings.

Excellent work, Jay! A true testpiece for the area and a great way to work on a hard route while avoiding the crowds at Primo. I can't wait to get back on this!

Great job, Jay! I'm so psyched for you, and I'm so glad my significant other sent this beast first! High quality addition to the Primo area removed from the other climbs!

I make very enjoyable hard flash of 13d route My Significant Other in Clear Creek Canyon yesterday. Much fighting through difficult crux along steep arete with many hold type on the climbing rocks. I almost come off but then remember how hard Sven Lavransen must would of try if he climb this, and my forearms becomes refreshed.
