DescriptionWhen there to replace the bolts we noticed an obvious direct start making the line independent of Romper Room; adding a quality bit of steep, undercling traversing to gain the original cruxy moves around a small roof. This new start does not make the route significantly harder, but removes a poorly placed bolt all together (and its ancient tat) and adds to the overall quality of the route; we added three closely spaced bolts safely protecting a ledge fall. We also replaced all of Frigid's original hardware. It is a great crimpy warm-up for the even crimpier YMC, and is a great way to get up there to hang the draws. It is a great route in its own right, and deserves to be added to a what is already a healthy 5.12 circuit at Sundown .
Variation: Instead of topping out on YMC traverse right into Romper Room, making for a longer, more sustained pitch.
The new start was bolted and first climbed into Frigid Relations by Bayard Russell and Freddie Wilkinson.
LocationThe route is located on a small buttress, between the routes Yellow Matter Custard and Romper Room, approximately 75' right of Dikenstein (an obvious left angling orange/yellow dike which is the first, most visible route you see on the approach).
Start as for Romper Room, traversing left on the ledge below the difficulties.
