Description [Suggest Change]

Be ready to tie one on and crank this one out! This climb is hella fun and should not be missed. Pumpy climbing with top secret footwork!

If you are looking for one more five ten to either warm up on, work till red point, or cool down on, this fun, funky little monster gives it to ya real good.

Get yourself started by crawling up a slab that's been split by a giant crack. Attack the steep head wall with both guns blazing. Creep and crawl like a ninja and make your way up to a super fun steep crux. Fight for your life by using big, yet unsecure holds going left or small, yet super sick holds going right. Make your escape on some crazy small holds or hit the eject button. Once the crux is over the rest of the holds are big and beautiful. THIS IS A SICK ROUTE! Get on it and enjoy a fabulous high level climb for all those Bond Girls (and boys) who have sacked up and checked their knot.

Call it "Live and Let Tie" if you onsight or flash. Call it "Tie Another Day" if you don't send and it becomes a project.

Location [Suggest Change]

Fourth bolt line from the left hand side of The Assassin Wall. Third route from the right of The Joker. The two bolt lines on the adjacent wall to the right of Live and Let Tie are five twelves that start on the trail far below the ledge that also serves as the belay for Buckshot Booya, James Blonde, and License to Drill.

Protection [Suggest Change]

8 quick draws and open sporty anchors. Stick clip first bolt if you don't want to get swallowed by the clam-like chasm at the start.
