Description

Stayin' Alive is another excellent sport route in Sport Land. The first pitch is good, and the second pitch is fabulous -- one of the best moderate 5.10 sport pitches I've done in Boulder Canyon. Don't miss this one when you visit Tonnere!

Start at a 2-bolt belay anchor below the arete right of Face Off. Be careful traversing over to the start; the ledge is exposed.

P1: Angle right to the arete, and climb past a steep section (9) to a stance. Continue up to the top of a small pinnacle. Cross a ledge, climb a steeper headwall, and angle left to the anchor shared with Face Off and Nick Of Time. 5.9, 90', 7 bolts.

P2. The fun begins! Climb a steep face above the anchor, and move right to a prominent "tooth". Don't pull on the tooth; it's delicate and may have to be removed. Traverse right past the tooth to a left-facing corner. Climb the steep corner and exit right to a stance (9). Climb up and right to a V-corner. Stem and layback up the corner to its top (10a). Climb up and left to an airy arete. Climb the arete and traverse right to the anchor. 5.10a, 95', 13 bolts.

Descend via two rappels with a 60m rope.

Location

On the arete right of Nick Of Time and Face Off.

Protection

P1: 2-bolt belay anchor at the start, then 7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
P2: 13 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Bring a few longer draws/runners.

Trad climbers can skip some of the bolts and place gear on the route if they so desire.
