Having somehow managed to introduce this route without a description, I'll put it in here. Party in your Pants ascends a pair of parallel crack systems just left of Easy Off. Stem and jam your way up the steep corners and past a series of wavy bulges, which provide the crux moves. Fairly continuous 5.8 climbing. Bring gear to 3".

A great sustained 5.8 trad climb. I would recommend doubling up on mid sized cams and bring one or two micro cams. Leave the small nuts, I never found a use for them. However, since I ran out of mid cams, I stacked two large stoppers. Great hand jams, a few stem rests, and the bulges do provide the crux moves.

The book says there's one bolt that you can back up with a 4" piece, but there were three equalized chains when I got to the anchor yesterday. Awesome fun by the way. A romp.

I found that the cracks took a wide variety of gear the entire way up. I was saving most of my wider gear because I thought I'd read it widens up at the top, but the crack undulates enough that you can really take a basic rack to 3" if you're conservative and creative. Plenty of nut placements, unlike Michiel I used my small nuts and they felt bomber.

if running pleasure laps on this fun climb, try just the left crack...no stems. a good little pure jamming jaunt.

very fun, sustained lead. as mentioned, the bulges provide the crux moves.
