Description

Fit for Life climbs the obvious tufas on the right hand side of the Bronco Bowl, starting about 140 feet up the middle of the Outrage Wall. Despite at least one chipped hold, this route features great movement in a spectacular position and is worth doing.

The route starts very mellow with fun moves on big jugs for a few bolts. A long move off an undercling to a jug marks the start of the route's difficulties. From here move up and right, overcoming a cool boulder problem on tufas and crimps that leads to a thread. A few easy moves and you're in the business, using a variety of pockets, edges, and the tufa on the left to work to the chains.

At least one of the holds on this route is chipped, a thread pocket on a the tufa. Some of the pockets leading to this felt enhanced but maybe I'm just being suspicious. The grade on this route seems to vary between 12b and 12c. I put it at 12c as it felt more than one letter grade harder than Guppie or Celestial Omnibus (both tufa-based 12as).

Location

On the right hand side of the Bronco Bowl. Climb the first pitch of Steel Pulse or New Bolts and then belay from the standard anchors.

Protection

Around 10 bolts

Definately a touch harder than Guppie and Celestial Omnibus so I give it a 12c. There is also a bit of a spook factor cause the route is very airy and traverses a bit making getting down a bit challenging and fun. Get er done.... Jul 10, 2012
