Description

This route lies on the southern part of the West Tiers, about 90 yards right of Blood and Cuts (5.10a). It ascends a very prominent left diagonalling dike (3 bolts), then up into a crack. It is easily visible from the road. One of the better routes in the vicinity and well worth doing.

Protection

3 bolts, small to medium cams.

A fun climb, but short and not overly remarkable. Two stars out of five.

The route is named for a (now defunct) gym in nearby Yucca Valley run by Lee, a fit older gentleman not unlike Jack Lalanne. Dec 11, 2003

Each of the 3 bolts have hangers which consist of 2 links of chain of unknown strength. Very uninspiring protection but very fun route otherwise. Any chance of the ASCA ever replacing these hangers ?

The fixed pin is gone. Jan 25, 2006

the fixed pin on this one has been gone for about 20 years now! Anyone know what the new 5 bolt route to the right is? Apr 9, 2009
