Description 

Established in 1992, Slice of Life was the first route in Colorado to be rated 14a. However, this historic route has been downgraded after climbers found up to seven kneebars including one at the crux dyno.

Fun, pumpy climbing on large holds leads to a funky boulder problem in a corner. After resting in a kneebar, pull through a roof and rest below the crux. Do the dyno, and continue past more side pulls until you reach the next rest below the final roof. The last 20 feet contains some very awkward climbing which leads to the repdoint crux just below the anchors.


Location 

This is just right of Zulu.


Protection 

Bolts and a two bolt anchor.

If you go left at the crux, it called Piece of Cake, 13c.
