Description

This is a great climb demanding a bunch of different skills. Face, crack, roof... it has it all. That said, the crux could change depending on your specific strengths.

Location

Love Handle follows the colorful face just right of Prerequisite for Excellence.

Protection

A light rack up to #1 camalot. There is a bolt that protects the face. Be sure to thread the "love handle" at the first roof!

Super route. I thought for a while this was "Short Arms Inspection" until "big" David steered me straight and highly rec'd this route...

A small rack and some long runners for the "Love Handle" gets you there pretty clean. New ring anchors at the top.

A classic for the 10 grade...has a bit of everything. Mar 8, 2007

Definitely a fun one! A heard someone fell onto the handle before the bolt was there and it held. Sketchy! Pretty safe nowadays. Feb 9, 2009
