This is another great line on the Wailing Wall! This one may have you fit to be tied, because it just doesn’t let up; it is the most sustained route I’ve climbed at RRCOS. There are two ways to start this climb: either work straight up to the left-facing corner to gain the first bolt, or start about 5’ to the right, using a great finger pocket to get into the large hole, then step left to the flake. Work up and left to the second bolt and take on the first crux; getting established up and left for the third bolt. Crux two comes at the fourth bolt, reaching a nice finger rail while having literally nothing for the feet. From here, the route eases off, ever so slightly, through a sea of tiny edges and smears. Passing the tenth and final bolt you will encounter the third crux, some off-balance climbing past two left-facing edges to reach the anchor. Rappel to descend.


Fit to be Tied is the fifth bolt line from the left, just left of a large juniper tree.


10 bolts, bolt anchor.
