Description

Begins at the hole about 7 ft off the ground. Follows a series of left-trending pockets to an easy move to a crimp. Then punch left to a flake at the lip and a hard move to a sloping crimp. Punch left for a good crimp around the lip and then move right. The left line of the two on the Eden Boulder's main face.

The Black Utah Bouldering book has this route improperly marked as Anatomy Act (V9). In fact, Anatomy Act sds (V12) takes the far left arete when facing Save Yourself.

Location

Begins at the hole about 7ft of the ground. Downclimbs off the back by an old tree. Variations. Save Yourself sds is V8. Save Yourself direct is V9 and takes the right hand crimp on Save Yourself with the left hand and then does a hard move to a shallow to finger pocket and the crux move to the lip.

Protection

2 pads atleast Spotter.

The description above describes 'Save Yourself Left', which is definitely the natural line for this problem. 'Save Yourself (Direct)' heads straight up from the big pocket at head height via some crimps and/or a pocket. The finish is probably a bit easier than the left variation. The direct is slightly contrived, but it climbs really well and is a worthwhile climb in its own right. All of these climbs start sitting these days.

Personally, I think 'Save Yourself Left' (from the sit) is more like v8. Either way, it's a great line with athletic and fun moves. Nov 18, 2014
