opposite side of Lesbian Lust... climber is Ryan ...


Boulder up to a high first bolt, clip it and then lieback your way up the sharp arete, with good feet, to shared anchors with Lesbian Lust. The crux comes just past the last bolt and is a little steeper than the rest of the route with more rounded hands and smears for the feet.

Excellent rock and engaging moves earn this two stars out of five.


This route climbs the other side of the same arete with Lesbian Lust.


4 bolts, bolted anchor/rap (all bolts 3/8")

The moves at the top seem a bit desperate for 10a. I'll call it 10b. It shares the anchor for Lesbian Lust.

I thought just after third bolt was the crux. That part felt rounded to me. Otherwise description above is on target. 10a

I feel like this was closer to 10b. The move at the top was pretty spicy. This rock is different than the stereotypical josh grittyness that I'm used to as well.
