Start this route by clambering up a massive and solid flake. After clipping the first bolt, you can safely scamper to the top of a nearly vertical face climb that is not without some fun moves.


Located in the Red Light District between the less intimidating start of Mammplitude to the left and the right-facing dihedral of Timeless Christian Values to the right, The Young and the Restless takes you out over the deck for some exposed moves on comforting jugs before you clip the first bolt.


4 bolts, shuts. Be sure your belayer anchors to something so you don't both tumble off the belay ledge which is about 10 feet off the deck.

It's also easy to belay from the lower ledge, just be mindful of the corner if you take a ride. Blowing the first clip will make for an ugly fall onto rough terrain. Feb 11, 2013

I agree with the 9+ rating given by the other commenter. I think this route is in line in difficulty with the 9s on the Rehab slab, at least for the solid 9 climber. The first time I did this I was a solid 9 climber, but not a solid 10 climber. It definitely felt 9+, and has a few tricky sequences.

Came back and did now that I'm a bit better, and it felt quite breezy. Recommend for the solid 9 climber for a bit of an extra challenge. Sep 26, 2013
This plain and simple is a horrid route, best avoided unless you are just trying to be a completist. If you are a 5.9 climber looking to "push it" walk a little further to Paradox wall and jump on one of the gym bolted 5.10 routes. May 15, 2016
