Description

This nice route is on the far right side of Menses Prow, on the face just left of the climb Menses. This climbs very similarly to No Passion for Fashion but with a harder crux and less-sustained climbing. The crux comes above the 4th bolt and could result in some airtime if you blow the final move of the sequence.

It faces north, so be careful in the winter months since the crux is pretty thin and strenuous. While its next door neighbor Menses soaks in the sun on winter mornings and can be climbed shirtless in December, Lunch at the Y is often frigid.

Protection

7 or 8 bolts to an anchor.

Awesome route. Crux is definitively hard, and with a large spacing between the 4th and 5th bolts, you could get some airtime. Apr 24, 2012

Powerful crux! Great route! I say, comparable to "Fashion". Mar 18, 2013

This route really needs a hardware upgrade. The hanger on 4th bolt protecting the crux is spinning, and the anchor (two cold shuts) are worn about 1/3 way through. Mar 12, 2016

Top anchors replaced 4/23/16 with ASCA stainless steel bolts/hangers, plus quicklinks and rings. 4th bolt also replaced with ASCA stainless steel bolts/hanger. Remaining 7 hangers upgraded with modern hangers (Tzilla provided).
Big thanks to the ASCA for the hardware and to PPCA for organizing the weekend! Apr 25, 2016
