Description

This well-conceived linkup traverses a set of astounding huecos to join the easier start of The Ejection Seat with the difficult headwall of My Generation.

Monkey your way up the steep start of The Ejection Seat to the horizontal break. Clip the third bolt, then make a rightward traverse to the first hueco, eventually passing two 'new' bolts to join MG. A great shake takes some of the sting out of the MG redpoint crux, but a higher slab crux will keep you on your toes right to the last bolt.

Location

This is on the Ejection Wall, beginning on The Ejection Seat and finishing on My Generation.

Protection

10 bolts to 2BA. Frist three share with Ejection Seat.

So I noticed that there were no comments regarding the status of this route and figured I'd provide my spiel. Anyway, I climbed ejection seat and was of course blown away as many others have been. However, during my time spent on eject generation, I was left speechless in any attempts to relay to others the dreamy quality of the route but more importantly the stone. I'll put it this way, I have climbed many, many .12s at Shelf. After having touched the stone on this route, I am uncertain as to weather or not I can ever climb there again. It's that good. Climb it. Jan 12, 2014

Worlds easier than its neighbor, My Generation. Pretty easy to read for an onisght. Recommend doing this last of the trifecta, that way when you get through to the upper part of My Generation you won't mess it up.... Really fun! Nov 22, 2015

I've only seen one other person on this, so I'll throw out a few comparisons to its more loved neighbor: The Ejection Seat.

Same grade but totally different monsters. First, the setup for the crux is one of the coolest moves at Shelf. The crux is pretty sustained compared to the Seat and puts you high above your last bolt with some airy mega falls if you miss that glory jug. Techy bulge after this took me considerable more time to sort out than the steep crux. Total disregard for my thumb's skin is what helped unlock this 'slab'. No move is as hard as the Seat's crux lunge, but this line is full value. Can't miss for the grade. Jan 9, 2019
