This is a worthwhile linkup of Squeeze Play's first crux into the sting in the tail finish of Sucking My Will to Live. The linkup avoids the off balance Houdini-esque gaston match of Sucking My Will to Live in exchange for some powerful pulls between decent holds. This one climbs nicely!


The start of this route, which is the same start as Squeeze Play , is located between Public Solitude and Sucking My Will to Live. Look for a line of bolts going up a gently overhanging wall immediately left of a right-facing open book that starts about 10 feet off the ground.


Bolts. Currently all the draws are fixed except the first draw which is easy to place on lead. Fixed biners are on the chains at the top.

Got on the bottom half of this today and was surprised at how fun the moves were, and unique despite being squeezed between other routes, and a link-up. A fun crux with a powerful finish. I was overlooking this one, wish I hadn't. Now I have something to work on when Public Solitude is crushing me, which is everytime I get on it.

I got on this route the other day and now I am left wondering why it isn't a bit more popular. If the top of Squeeze Play is bullying you (as it did me), this is a great alternative. Instead of pulling that weird/funky/magical slabbiness beta on "Sucking", you can trade it for some thuggery with the same redpoint crux of Sucking.

Great route! It's been a lot of years since I did Sucking My Will, but from what I remember, this is more enjoyable. Insanely beta intensive, like everything else around here.
