Description

Pretty similar to Sunset Lanes and 3 Pump Chump. Starts out on an easy slab then climb three or four bolts to a hands off rest. might be tricky to figure out but its there. takes a bit of body tension. then continue through three or four bolts to a bulge. go up to the right a bit and over the bulge and try not to shit yourself as you look for a way to get to the runners and up to the next bolt then up to the chains. Awesome climb!!

Location

just left of 3 Pump Chump. Starts on the same slab.

Really, really good climb. It is comparable in style and quality to the classic routes at the Grail. Mar 15, 2016

I had some trouble knowing If I was on shell shocked or its a good life. My guidebook said IAGL had 9 bolts and SS had 14. I brought along 12 draws, skipped a few bolts and still ran out of draws by the end but I was climbing the line from the only picture on this page. The other thing that had me thinking I'd done shell shocked was that my book shows IAGL sharing anchors with the neighboring route on its right and shell shocked had its own anchor. Can somebody clear this up for me? Sep 21, 2017

This is basically a perfect route , really stellar friction on this wall . Hardest moves are just off the slab and the red point crux is probably at the top below the runnels. Oct 21, 2017
