This route is actually scarier for the follower than the leader! After the first two bolts on pitch one, make a 5.9+ move left(very bad swing for the follower) and traverse 40-50' left to three bolts which lead up a short headwall(crux) to the belay.

The second pitch climbs up and right past a couple of widely spaced bolts(and gear) to a belay shared with Quiet Desperation.

Easier climbing leads a pitch or two, depending on your ability and rope length, to the top.


This route starts from the top of a small flake about 100-150' downhill from the prominent arch of Arch Rival. Daddy's Little Girl goes straight up. The Way We Were heads up and left. Descend as for South Crack.


Bolts and small gear.
