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.
