Start as for Why Left up blocky terrain to the high first bolt. After the first bolt, head right using some shared holds with Why Left initially. Use pockets and sidepulls aiming for the bolted crack higher up. I stepped across the wide crack mid-route while laybacking the edge of the wide crack up to the finger crack. This was fun.

Finish using finger locks in the upper crack and sharp holds near the anchor. Nice position.

This route is called "Generation X" in D'Antonio's new Shelf Road book. It is not to be confused with the much easier and more aesthetic Gen X ation (aka Musso Route)


The route climbs the face right of Why Left.


8 bolts (?) to a two-bolt anchor with rap rings.
