Description

Start off a boulder below a left-facing corner. The first bolt is a ways up, and you'll probably want to stick clip first (especially if the route's damp). Smear off the face to left and pull into the corner. Look for positive (but small) edges along the corner. The crux is a thin section between the second and third bolts. Continue stemming between the face and the small corner past one more bolt to the anchors. Fun, strenuous route.

Location

Located on the left side of the Things as They Are alcove. Look for the obvious left-facing corner.

Protection

3 bolts to anchors.

I'm pretty sure it's only 3bolts to the anchor.
The picture corroborates this... Dec 8, 2007

It was called things as they are (from what i hear) because it was done on gear and things could be left as they were... i did it on gear today, it was fun and more difficult but its more fun clipping the bolts cause you can use the cracks for hand holds :) Aug 18, 2009

I learned the hard way to stick clip the first bolt. Took a tumble when my hand snapped off a hold. Good thing my spotter was there. Apr 29, 2013

Cool fingerlock moves and laybacks up the nice corner/crack. Easy to tr after leading beginning of all things. Nice because you can still climb this even if the start is wet. Jul 22, 2013
