Description

This route is harder than the reach dependent Sensory Deprivation. I Have The Touch is cruxy and takes some work to climb and is somewhat sharp and steep. The route is a ton of fun and good on cool days, gets sun and is at a cool location, just don't disturb the miner below.

Great climb but too many loose edges for this route to be considered a classic (3 out of 5 stars). One of my partners (Gold Hunk) suggested renaming the route to "I Had The Touch" after a key hold was pulled off. The last moves on Sensory Deprivation felt comparable in difficulty to the crux moves on IHTT. Aug 23, 2004

Loose holds! I don't recall any particularly loose holds. Pull down, not out. Vern: Don't climb with people who are too young or too strong! Aug 24, 2004

Note: Height dependant...I Have The Touch vs. Sensory Deprivation.

Edit: I Read my notes on this climb and it took me almost the same amount of time to climb this than Cosmic Trigger, but this was in 1998 or 99 so things might have changed on the routes but memory certainly has, but I think the main thing for me was the fact that in my mind it (IHTT) was .12d as in the guide I had so there was certainly a Mind Game I was playing...
