This climb goes up 3 bolts, traverses up and right to small right facing corner/notch. Lifeline comes close to Crossing Over at this point so don’t get sucked right onto the traverse of Crossing Over. Continue up the small right facing corner/notch. Some climbers may want to place a small cam between the two bolts here. After pulling over the small notch, follow the crack right, then up. The crack goes about 30-40 feet without bolts so you will need the pro. Don’t forget about your second, if they fell after unclipping the last bolt before the crack they would swing over 15-20 feet. It’s easy ground but… At the end of the crack you will find 2 more bolts before the anchor. Because of the length and rising nature of this climb a single 60 rope will not reach back to the starting belay point but a single 60 rap will reach upslope to the Climbers Choice Wall. Please remember there may be climbers below on Climbers Choice Wall so yell and give a chance for a response. Tie a knot at the end of your ropes. 10 bolts total. 40-45 meters


You can start this climb from either the ground next to the Traverse Tree a.k.a. Tuning Fork Tree (see upper branches). This is located about 25 yards upslope from the start of Golden Years. There is a perfect white quartzite table to flake the rope on. Or you can start this climb by stopping at the Lifeline starting belay stance on the Main Slab just left of the Tuning Fork Tree when you rappel down from Peter’s Paradise or traverse over right when going up Golden Years. I would not start up Lifeline from the top anchor on Golden Years as that involves an initial 20 foot traverse over to the first bolt, it’s better to go over the belay stance for Lifeline.


Bring small selection of small/medium stoppers/tech friends on this climb.
