Description

Start this route from the small ledge next to a bush. Climb up past nice hand jam pods, an awkward flare and thin cracks to the sloping ledge. Once established on the ledge, carefully traverse to the left and finish on a glorious finger crack to the anchor. Best route at the cliff!

Location

from the base of Finger Lickin, turn right and hike up the hill for 100 feet. You will see a wall with two thin cracks, Lifeline is the crack system on the RIGHT side of the wall.

Protection

One #2, doubles from .5 BD to black alien. Extra green and blue alien. Single set of alloy offset nuts and a single set of brass offsets (or peanuts).

Alexey, Ed verified that Lifeline, including the top section, was established as described on this page. The thin line on the left stops halfway up the wall, then becomes a blank face. I do not think that it has been connected with the crack above. Jan 18, 2018
