This short but fun route climb the seam right of Life's A Bitch...

This is not a destination crag, but still a fun area to start or finish your day with a few more routes.


2 bolts, bolted anchor (all 3/8")


To protect this climb safely, a couple thin cams should be placed between the bolts. Oct 26, 2003

So much fun for such a short one! I loved this route. You can TR it after leading the crack to the left. Nov 9, 2008

It's tricky to get the cams in above the bolt, leaning out left and placing blindly in the thin, shallow crack. A fun, technical little problem. Nov 9, 2009

We TRed this one after leading Life's a Bitch and then You Marry One. Nobody in our group was up for the 5.10c grade, but we found fun climbing anyway; 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 the left to get back on route. You're not really climbing the route, but there's a lot of fun moves none-the-less. If you climb it that way, it's maybe 5.8. Dec 14, 2009

Sustained on thin edges, some good moves. Dec 11, 2011

Well-defined crux at the lower bolt. On first TR lap I found the crimps painful and the route underwhelming. On second lap, with beta, I didn't have to bear down nearly as hard, and it was really fun. Short, but lots of quality movement packed in. Overall a fun little micro crag--the 5.7 crack and this route together are a good pair for a team of mixed abilities. Apr 13, 2015

Still kinda hard. The moves are technical yet positive. Pretty fun, rock is good.... anchor is questionable. Jul 23, 2015
