A Wonderful Life was a saving grace and needed distraction from reality for Dan when we were working on the pitch. He got so excited about the line that he actually wanted to add bolts to link the bottom and top, though I am pretty sure I did the bolting. He was slow at first, to see the potential a few bolts would open up. At the end of the day, all was wonderful and life seemed right and just. A striking pitch with classic Waterfall climbing.

Start on a very pronounced finger crack 2 systems left of Resurrection. Work your way up to a shallow, overhanging, left facing dihedral passing three bolts. Once you reach the upper dihedral be ready to move and place thin gear on the run.


On the far right side of the Right Wall. Left of Resurrection. Obvious finger crack which is at the moment shrouded by branches.


Plenty of small/medium TCUs, small/medium wires, and Lowe Balls.

This route would be perfect without the series of sharp, detached blocks towards the top. Has anyone tried removing the bottom one? Oct 10, 2013

I'm sure Dan and I looked them over thoroughly, but this was also before we started dropping blocks like these. I might have a chance to take a closer look sometime soon, but if you are feeling industrious Ryan go for it. Just be safe, and start at the top if you can.... Oct 10, 2013
