Description [Edit]

Tainted Love is a classic pitch with a unique flavor, and shares the start with Barbarian Rising. Enjoy interesting climbing up solid blocks to gain small hand/hand crack in open dihedral filled with wonderful stemming. Turn roof on the left with holds that will make you smile, and take a plank rest.

From the rest stance, head left to obvious jug rail and bolts, then continue to look for holds around the left side of the arete. From there, you have to really start cranking. The upper section is either brutally physical, or devilishly technical; pick your poison. Total of five bolts from the rest to the top.

Location [Edit]

To the Left of Barbarian Rising. Shares start with that route.

Protection [Edit]

A good selection of small hands to hands sized pieces. Single set of small/medium Tcus. Small wires at the top optional.

The bolted climbing up top is beautiful. A must-do if you love arete climbing. Jan 31, 2014
Beware of a very loose block about 10 or 15 feet up this route. Dec 1, 2016
