Description

This is the left bolted line on the SE face. The beginning is bouldery, but small nuts protect the initial moves well. It eases up with widely spaced bolts, so bring extra gear. This shares the anchors with Subterrainian and Double Standard, and is the quickest way to set up a toprope for those 2 climbs.

Protection

2 draws for anchors. 4 draws on the way and a small selection of small to medium nuts.

Where'd the first bolt go?
I have climbed this route many times, but sometime between summer 2013 and May 2014 the first bolt for Lip Service has disappeared. Just curious if anyone knows whether it fell out or if someone removed it for some reason? Jun 12, 2014

Not a bad cimb, did thid today with lots of sun, but plenty of wasps as well until it was in the shade! I used 3 pieces of gear on this, two below the first bolt and one towards the top. Sep 26, 2007

You will wanna bring gear for this route. The first bolt is a long ways up. A small nut works for the initial moves but you may want to place another piece, as well, cause you have a definite ground fall if u don't make that first bolt. Sep 14, 2004
