Description

Climb the first three bolts of Gorilla Love Affair, then do a easy but unprotected traverse over the right slab into the top of Wretched of the Earth. Allows you to link fun cruxes of both routes, with moderate climbing in between. Worth doing!

Don't stop at the lower Heart of Darkness anchor. The WofE top crux continues for ~15ft to a higher anchor.

This might be PG-13. If it becomes a popular link-up, I'll add a bolt to protect the traverse. Or, if anyone else has the equipment and inclination to do it, FA permission is granted.

Location

Do the crux of GLA and then head right over the slab and straight up the dihedral mid-section of WotE

The traverse from the GLA crux into the first bolt you clip on WotE is really easy, maybe 5.8, and about 10' of runout. Definitely worth getting on if you have sent GLA, as the upper crux on WotE is really fun once you figure it out. Oct 21, 2015
