I think you probably went off route; the last bolt (the one with the fat quick link attached) is not a hard clip to make. Hope you had an attentive belayer! :) May 28, 2012

I ended up going a few feet right to surmount the buldge, and ended up having to skip the last bolt before the anchors (as I was way to the right and had no good stance to clip from). I get the feeling I went off route. May 28, 2012

I couldn't agree more I personally think this is one of the more fun 5.9s around, make sure you grab the correct hold near the top or it is much harder. Dec 15, 2008

Couch Potato is a tricky little endeavor. The start can twist you into pretzel shapes, and the upper bulge has nice movement through the crux, that is, if you find the right holds in the right order. In between, the comfy holds and closely spaced bolts keep you smiling. Mar 3, 2007
