A surprisingly fun route, Teenagers in Heat starts on some great pockets for 4 bolts before going to more technical climbing of edges and sidepulls. The first half of the route is slightly overhanging with great pockets. Angle backs off at the 4th bolt with a great rest before the technical ending. Don't be afraid to wander a little up top.
Teenagers in Heat is just to the right of Physical Therapy and starts just below the stone retaining wall, behind the tree at the base of this wall. It's the third climb from the right of the big dihedral offwidth crack to the right of Deep End.
8 bolts plus the chains.

Pockets are pretty good at the start, but the face section up above has gotten really chossy (especially to the right). I'd avoid it, there is enough great rock at Division that you're not missing anything here.

I like this route a lot. The thin, balancy crux at the top is exciting and a world apart from the pumpy start. Easily TRed from the 9.

I used to really hate this climb and when I sent it some time ago, I swore I would never do it again. Well...I was talked into doing it again and found that I really like it. If you have good footwork, I think this makes the crux a lot easier. I guess if you eat your spinach long enough you'll eventually like it.

Unsafe climb for the 5.10 climber. Onsight of this climb is well above 5.10b because of the thin section on the black rock after bolt four. Don't fall clipping 4, or getting to bolt 5.

Haha, after reading the Black Hole comments I thought wait till he gets on this route. Sure enough.

I went for a ride falling before a high bolt on the upper, technical section. One of the biggest falls I've taken sport climbing. It's a long fall but pretty safe-- I didn't even come close to hitting the tree

After the 4th bolt just take your time and use your feet. It is a technical section for sure, but can be done no problem with good feet. Its good to work those nerves a little. At the top just keep climbing a little above the chains and use the ledge on the bottom left right below the chains. Not a good warmup if your not used to slab climbing and thin holds.
