Perhaps 35 feet or so of continous bouldering at solid 5.12 climbing. Something like that. Start way down on the right side of the big boulder on steep arete at some really good pockets. Work up the arete using whatever feels good to the corner. Get a little rest and then start into the left tending traverse over crimps and slopers to the pointed jug on All In The Family and continue to the top of that route.


Pads, spotters

Yeah this starts way low and right around the corner, while all in the family starts low right on the godfather face. So all in all is longer and incorporates the same crux. So yeah it is harder, maybe JJ just didn't think it deserved a bump in number though. I thought they were similar since the holds on all in all were big to start. Jun 2, 2011

So i'm a bit confused by the difference between this and "All in the Family", does this just add the lower moves farther to the right of the boulder and links into Family? Or is there something else different?

Also if Family is V5+ how can this not be a 6- if it adds some extra moves? Jun 2, 2011
