If and Only If (iff) is a burly little number that climbs out the steepest part of the Dungeon. Climb steep corner-like features to a two bolt long crux sequence that culminates with a heartbreaking move to a thank God jug. Hold on through easier but pumpy terrain to the chains.

This is a pretty special route for me as it is one of my hardest redpoints, and I got it 2.5 months after my first child was born. Summon your inner Dad strength, and enjoy!


It is between Zed's Dead and Tanuki in the center of the steep wall.


11 bolts and a kneebar pad or two.

Note: the first 7 bolts have permadraws, so you only need 4 draws. The first several draws were heinous to clean!

I'm guessing the grade will settle around 13b, but the pumpy nature of the climbing makes it hard to grade. I was able to do all of the moves on the first day, but it took a long time for me build up the fitness necessary to put it all together. Jun 23, 2017

The overhanging crux with many sidepull options is a bit reminiscent of s00pr kr33m in the Flatirons, but this is more difficult and sustained in my opinion. Go do it!

Fantastic climb, thanks for all of the bolts and belays, Dave! Jun 29, 2017

Congratulations the FA, I think I heard you YELL, with JOY, the day you sent it. Jul 5, 2017
The crux is around 13c. The rest of the route is 12d. Split the difference, and give yourself 13b for the send. This is an amazing area, sure to become popular when people figure out what's up. Aug 27, 2017
What a stellar line with varied movement and holds! Full body trickery clears you through the crux with thoughtful, fun climbing before and after. Great eye, Dave! Jul 9, 2018

Surprisingly pumpy route, the redpoint crux is a sleeper. Great route! Aug 16, 2018

Such a solid rock climb! I was able to go no-hands at the knee bar before the crux by using my left foot as a posting foot. I found the crux to be about 8 individual moves, clocking in around V6 or so. To make the pumpy clip before exiting the crux, I used a brief left knee scum in one of the undercling holds. The quality of climbing stays with you to the chains on the rather pumpy upper 5.11 section. Take in the view before lowering! Oct 1, 2018
