Description

This is a worthwhile linkup of Squeeze Play's first crux into the sting in the tail finish of Sucking My Will to Live. The linkup avoids the off balance Houdini-esque gaston match of Sucking My Will to Live in exchange for some powerful pulls between decent holds. This one climbs nicely!

Location

The start of this route, which is the same start as Squeeze Play , is located between Public Solitude and Sucking My Will to Live. Look for a line of bolts going up a gently overhanging wall immediately left of a right-facing open book that starts about 10 feet off the ground.

Protection

Bolts. Currently all the draws are fixed except the first draw which is easy to place on lead. Fixed biners are on the chains at the top.

Got on the bottom half of this today and was surprised at how fun the moves were, and unique despite being squeezed between other routes, and a link-up. A fun crux with a powerful finish. I was overlooking this one, wish I hadn't. Now I have something to work on when Public Solitude is crushing me, which is everytime I get on it. Jan 13, 2010

Great route! It's been a lot of years since I did Sucking My Will, but from what I remember, this is more enjoyable. Insanely beta intensive, like everything else around here. Dec 22, 2013

Really enjoyed this route. The movement through the low crux bulge are very cool and going into the top of Sucking my Will to Live didn't feel like an unnatural linkup. Now, on to Squeeze Play. Feb 12, 2015
Had such a blast on this route! After a battle with clipping the fourth bolt from the ground, arggggg, I was able to happily send. Now onto to the left finish. Worth the drive from Boulder and pretty good temps in the afternoon in early August. Aug 11, 2015

I left my Grigri 2 (orange) with a gold Petzl Attaché biner at the base of Primo Wall on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016 somewhere between the warmups on the left hand side and Shine. Please message me if you find it.... Feb 26, 2016

This route was dry while the final holds of Squeeze Play were seeping, so Jackie and I hopped on. I'm glad we did! When I go back for Squeeze Play and I'm at that 5th bolt rest, I'll look longingly up and to the right. :) Oct 6, 2018
