What's that name about, anyhow?

What you never want to hear from your girlfriend?

'I'm Late' is a worthwhile route, especially if you're at the T-Wall looking to climb 5.7. It begins a hand crack in a small, left-facing corner about 10 feet right of 'Stepping Stone', and continues up on easier ground after a little rooflet. This route tends to hold a bit of dust after a rain, but not enough to scare you off.

Protection and Anchors

Rings at the top. Normal stuff.

Very nice route! Great protection lowers the stress level on the "intense-for-5.7" section in the middle. Feb 20, 2010
Well, after 31 years I can still recall putting this route up with Ron and how it got named. After I got down from leading it, Rob Robinson came by and said that it was a new route and what did I want to name it? I looked at my watch and said “I’m late!”(for work). Rob said, "So that’s what I’ll put down" – sorry no girlfriend at the time. I do recall it being a short route and a good crux for a 5.7. Aug 16, 2016
This route shares bolted anchors with Family Planning. Really nice and gear wherever you want. Quite hard for 5.7. slight sandbag. Jan 26, 2017
