Description

Endless Bliss is the obvious and popular slab route on the right side of Gun Show. Begin by following a flake up and right, then launch into the business of the climb, connecting intermittent edges with thinner and harder moves. The main challenge is trusting your feet and stepping off the edges as you get higher.

Climb all the way to the second anchor with a 60M rope for maximum enjoyment.

Protection

Bolts. Two single-rope raps are needed to reach the ground.

Book calls it 10 something, but I'd say it's closer to 5.8 with a couple thoughtful moves required. Protection is a little killjoy. I ran both 'pitches' together using 9 draws and felt fine. Definitely fun and worth climbing! Jul 9, 2010

A longish single pitch divided by a midway convenience rap anchor for those who don't have two ropes. Has many holds that are clearly chipped :-(. As others have said, it is over-bolted. Nonetheless, its a worthwile 5.8+ pitch of edging between juggy horizontal faults on the only outstanding face of rock in the immediate area. I figure without the chipped holds that it might have been a brilliant 5.11 friction test-piece. Sep 2, 2011

Great slab climb, a 70m rope will almost get you down from the top chains. About a 3-4 foot drop from the rope ends. It's also an easy down climb move if you don't want to drop. Sep 16, 2015

Waaay too many bolts. I found myself carrying up the quick draws quite often. I would also encourage you to do it all in one pitch and belay from the top, if you only have one partner, or just set up a TR on the first pitch if more than one. The first pitch is definitely worth doing, but the second is no harder than 5.7 and probably not worth the hassle of two rappels. Apr 8, 2016

Expected a bolt ladder from the reviews, but found it to be similarly bolted to most sport routes I've climbed. Thin hands and feet in the middle. Very enjoyable slab. Jul 31, 2016
