This is the attractive looking hand crack just right of the arete. Scramble up an easy slab to the start of the crack, and then start jamming. Good climbing, but wish it was longer. Very soft for 5.7


stoppers and cams to 3"

One of the more mellow 5.7's in the Park. Not 100% sure where the 5.7 move was but felt like it was there somewhere... Oct 2, 2006

Top roped the 5.9 arĂȘte just to the left of Life's A Bitch, some fun huggy moves, worth doing as long as you're up there. You can use the same anchor you built for Life's A Bitch. Start in the dihedral with bush and then "hug" the arĂȘte all the way up. Sep 24, 2007

Not a bad route just way too short. Take note that there are no rap rings on the bolts up top. There is some webbing and cord thru the bolts and one of them is an old 1/4 inch bolt. The one bolt needs to be replaced and rap rings installed. It also appears that some bolts on the climbers left were chopped. I don't believe these are convenience bolts since there is not a safe walkoff that I could find. Apr 21, 2008

Fun route that eats up gear! Anchors at the top, though webbing may need to be replaced soon... looked at worked just fine, just about anyone's guess as to how old it was. May 3, 2009

Climbed this route today, and old webbing on the rap anchors is not an issue; someone added a pair of quick links to the bolt hangers to the right of the top of this climb.

The rap anchor can also be used to TR Marital Sin, which is 5.10c, but if you can't climb at that level, it's still fun, the hard part of the route can be skipped by traversing to the right below the first bolt, getting a foot on the large knob overhead, then stemming out to the only obvious hold to your left to get back on route.
