First pitch: 5.10d fingers to an easier flake. 2nd crux pitch: A beautiful splitter that goes up the arête starting with thin hands and widening to cups, which narrows back down to thin hands. Scramble up and walk off to the left or rap the route from ASCA fixed anchors with a 70m rope.


"Speed of Life" is up on Golden Rock on the right, west side of Ellery Bowl, left of a long, narrow gully, about 0.5 miles up from the Tioga Road (US 120).


pro: small to 3½”, especially ½” to 1¼”.
