Description

Good route to break into the grade, as the crux involves passing the first bolt, traversing left to right to better and obvious holds. The rest of the first pitch holds one's interest, but it's not hard 5.10.
Second pitch chossier but worthy -- and it's there. Exercise care descending; a 60m rope is adequate, but watch (or tie) the ends.
Members Only is over-starred (in Marty's book) in my estimation; if nearby Sex Magik deserves 5, Timeless warrants 3.

Location

The right-most of three routes (Optimator and Bender share a start) on the left-most of the Staying Powers Towers.

Protection

7 bolts for the first pitch, just 5 for the 90'+ second (5.9) pitch

Fun route but a bit sporty clipping the 2nd bolt. Jan 5, 2014
