Description

A varied climb with an inobvious sequence that is nonetheless enjoyable once you figure it out. Start in the crack (I didn't clean the crack aggressively because it is part of another climb #respect). Break left of the crack soon after leaving the ground and climb lower angle face to the base of the steep fin. Pick your way through a pleasant but hard to identify sequence with fun footwork. toward the top I enjoy breaking left right out to the edge of the fin (awesome kneebar ;) but it is possible to climb straight up staying right of the bolts if you prefer. An anchor awaits on a slab at the top of the fin. You may continue past the anchor to the ledge up and to the right if you are continuing to one of the upper routes, Welcome to the Afterlife 5.12a or The Mean Lean 5.12a+ (haha).

Interesting climbing which was hidden by a good amount of loose rock. I have removed all the loose stuff I could identify but I would say don't stray too far from the path of the bolts or you are getting into the adventure zone.

Location

On the left end of the Hinterlands up and left of the classic, Jolt. There is a wall with an obvious right angling crack. Live a Muerte starts in the crack and promptly breaks left following stainless glue-in bolts. do not climb the crack beyond the good hold around first bolt height as the rock gets sketchy.

Protection

6 bolts to pigtail/ram horn anchors
