Description

This is the right most climb on the Andy Cook wall, and is listed as a project in Squeezing the Lemmon 2. Alex and I had heard it was an old Ringle project and was likely in the 5.13 range. I had looked at it before and we finally decided to go check it out.

We were blown away that not only was the climbing interesting and very good, but that the route wasn't nearly as difficult as we were expecting. I replaced the jengus old hardware with fresh stainless and we feel that this abandoned route is now a must do at the crag!

Randy Cook Lives! has three distinct sections that will keep you guessing with varied moves and holds. Begin with a section of tenuous smears and try to keep ye ole barn door closed until you gain a large undercling flake. Do a wild and improbable sequence to gain another huge flake. Romp up this to a powerful move with bad feet to gain some cool pockets. Jam, yes hand jam, out the roof to gain some sidepulls and exit the headwall via powerful pulls on crimps. Sink some more jams on your way to the chains.

I think the old project followed the seam much more closely, that's why it was considered to be hard. I got on it 20 yrs ago and it seemed wicked. Good eye on the part of you guys seeing that there was another route there just waiting to be unlocked. It's really good ! Feb 28, 2016
This is a very good line. Thanks for re-bolting it. Good rock and interesting movement makes this a "must do" if you are in the area. Apr 18, 2014
