Bust some moves right up the vertical face below a big green arch until you can start moving right. The crux is in here somewhere, usually hidden with lichen, but the fingery holds are there when you need them. You can continue way to the right on an easy ramp and clip the anchors of Tricky Goldy if you plan on continuing up the top of the formation.


From the top of Shipley Drive, continue straight up until you can start moving right under the obvious arch. Can be a bit mossy at times. Continue on until you hit the top anchors of Chick Dead. From here you can do a double rope rappel back to the ledge or into the gulley.


Bolts to bolted anchor.

"Don't be late" was a favorite saying of Walt Shipleys, and that is what this route is named after. Hendrix coined the line in Voodoo Child, and for the most part means hurry up and get to onto the next world, "and don't be late". Aug 22, 2007
