A Day in the Life

5.11c, Sport, 60 ft,  Avg: 3.1 from 163 votes
FA: Bill Boyle, 1989
Nevada > Southern Nevada > Red Rock > 04-Second Pullo… > Gallery
Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details


This route has sustained crimps throughout, and is slightly overhanging. A very fun start leads to a great pump as you keep climbing. Near the end you have the option of some more small crimps or a dynamic dead point. Either way you finish, this route is solid for the grade and a very enjoyable climb.


Begin by starting at the small tree/bush and climbing out the right side of the pod in the middle of the wall. Continue up to the anchors through a series of crimps.


Several bolts to the chain anchors.

Without good technique this move may feel a bit reachy, However, Amos really rocked this climb!

[Hide Comment] well, the guy in the photos is vertically challenged- under 5'6", if i recall (just how short are you, art?)....

i remember that route being annoying at the start, but once you got past the 2nd bolt, it wasnt too bad. dont recall it being overly reachy, though. Nov 12, 2008

[Hide Comment] i'm 5'9 and found no issues with this route. there is definitely no need to dyno. I enjoyed the movement, especially the start. just smear right and use that pinch feature for balance as you reach up out of the dish to the start of the juggies. Mar 26, 2009

[Hide Comment] Found the route to be quite techy and sequency. I think I was able to skip that big hold way out right after the dish. Dont think its necessary and might even throw you off sequence. Dec 9, 2010

[Hide Comment] On 1/29/11 the ASCA replaced the second pro bolt on this climb with a 1/2 x 2.75 SS 5-piece bolt.

On 12/5/13, the ASCA replaced the anchor on this route with 1/2" x 4.5" SS 5-piece bolts and equipped them with quicklinks for rappel. Jan 30, 2011

[Hide Comment] Check your ass between the second and third clips, I fell and hit the ledge behind the climb full force. I was fine, but now have a bruised ass. Jan 2, 2014

[Hide Comment] I don't find this route terribly enjoyable.

Awkward start leads to hard pulls on small holds on a slightly overhung wall. Not a good warm up imo, even if you're there to climb the stuff to the right

To each their own though Jul 5, 2015
