If you carried up only draws to the Lonely Challenge Area, Rubbing it Raw is worth a quick ride as another warm-up (in addition to Watermelon Tetras) for Eternal Flow. It is also the most direct way to reach Eddy of Life. Start 10 feet left of the first pitch of Eternal Flow and follow bolts up and left to chains. Spy a good landing for the first set of moves.


Only line of bolts left of Eternal Flow before the large chockstone in the gully guarding access to Zen and Lone Man. Lower or rap from chains.




Getting the first bolt clipped was exciting, then easy choss for the rest of the way. A one star route, but it does get you up to the start of Eddy of Life. Jul 31, 2018
