Description

This route is a strong contender for the best route at Red Wing. Short, but powerful and sustained, with excellent moves on good rock; Living All Over Me is a change from the delicate, crimpy climbing that is so common on other hard routes at the bluff. Flat edges lead from the ground to the first and overall crux of the climb; a powerful boulder problem pressing into a nasty gaston, getting into a tiny undercling, and then lunging for a great incut edge. Shortly after, a rest is reached that allows you to shake out and chalk before committing to the second boulder crux; a powerful reach into a good undercling followed by a huge low percentage bump up and right to a good edge. A few more moves up the arete and it's in the bag. The true crux of the route lies in sticking the dicey lunge near the top despite the fatigue of sending the more powerful lower section. Extremely solid at the grade by the bluff's standards, Living All Over Me is a true Red Wing classic.

Skipped that nasty gaston. How do people use that thing. Solid and so fun. Oct 19, 2014

Man this a tough little route, def felt harder than mississippi burning and substantially harder than preemptive strike. Fun bouldery movement, on slick feet.

The grading at barn bluff is all over the place. Some routes are absolutely laughable at the grade, while others, such as this one .... Oct 30, 2011

rack one draw on your right for the first bolt. other three draws on your left. otherwise, clipping with your right is difficult, awkward, slow, pumpy, etc. too bad this climb is so short! enjoyed it. May 27, 2008
I decided to describe the sequences that most people use, even though I also have seen both of them done numerous ways. In fact, I used a sequence similar to the one you did Chris. I reached to the sidepulls out right as well, but I found it hard to switch feet and reach up with the left hand because I was so gassed from the rest of the climb that my hand would open on the positive but small sidepull. Instead I used the sidepull as an intermediate and bumped my right hand up to the good edge. This was still pretty hard and non-static for me, but felt way easier than the full on throw, which I believe Kris used when he sent it. Anyhow, all the variations on this climb feel hard to me and when I sent, it still all came down to whether I could stick that move on the link. Jun 21, 2007

Agree with Adam. Classic at any crag, my favorite at Red Wing, and THE benchmark 12b. Funny thing about this climb, I either felt totally solid or completely flailed, no in between. If you want to work this, you can put a TR on it from the 11b-ish bolted arete to the right. May 30, 2007

Technical, demands good footwork and body tension. A great route. Mar 5, 2007
Best route at redwing, in my opinion. Very bouldery and very solid for the grade. This one's not getting downgraded. My longest project at the bluff. Nov 15, 2006
