This is a really good route with cool moves and good protection.


Start about 15 feet left of Same As It Ever Was below the obvious, black, flaring crack.

Rap from a two bolt anchor.


Four bolts and small to medium cams.

We thought about calling this area the Senior Wall or more aptly the Heat Stroke Wall. It can really get hot here, so plan wisely. The climb was named to reflect my entry in the Colorado Senior Open (golf) at the end of this month. In a few years, I will be able to play in the "super senior" division (60+). Aug 9, 2007
Best route at Boulder Slips. Apr 8, 2012

This is a fun route. We did not use a #3 Camalot in the spot in Leo Paik's picture. We used smaller cams just above and a #3 as the last piece, much higher. The crux is certainly at the spot listed in the picture. This route shares an anchor with Family Guy and Same as it Ever Was and does not have its own anchor as shown in the D'Antonio guide.

The D'Antonio book shows this going to its own anchor... but as Jay points out, that is not the case.

The route is good until the top. If you go up to where the anchor is drawn in the D'Antonio guide, the climbing is dirty, loose, and insecure.

Also, I think it was above the last bolt 18" that there is a chopper-sharp flake. You can get 1/2-3/4" pro above it to avoid a cut rope in a fall, so that might be worth doing. May 7, 2017
