No Tomorrow

Description

Start just right of Farts of Horsemen and ascend the same inset wall. How can two routes so close together be so different? No Tomorrow starts off in a pale, nearly sandy looking crack. The crack is solid and kicks up very continuous and tenuous climbing for two thirds of the route's length. Above the crack the wall returns to Farts style climbing on flat cobbles and shallow pockets. No Tomorrow offers another superb challenge, out of the sun, and on largely very solid stone. I usually prefer Farts to No Tomorrow for the quality of the moves themselves, however, climbing feels just a bit more uncertain on No Tomorrow and the pro feels a bit more spaced. Nontheless, No Tomorrow stacks up as an excellent and atypical route for the Shelf. This is definitely worth the struggle.

Ten or so draws and a rope.
