Description Suggest change

This is the second pitch of Living with Abandon. Admin agree that should be its own route on Mountain Project as it is very different from Living with Abandon and also (sort of) easily accessible without doing the burlier, steeper first pitch. One can climb the first few bolts of Scrubbing Bubbas and then make a right turn to approach the obvious clean face of Dying while Dancing. Alternatively, one can climb the first few bolts of B-B-Bubbas, back clean as you go, and put some lengthy slings on higher-up bolts to make the right turn towards Dying while Dancing. I did this and the rope drag wasn't bad at all. 

Once up underneath the face, gather yourself and make moves between crimps and reinforced flakes. Crux is a little cryptic and thin. Jugs under anchors. Brilliant view at the top!

Eyebolts and lower-offs are brand new. I thought this route was fun and much like a harder, steeper version of Skunks in the Gym. Enjoyable to piece together moves on a blank-looking face with great exposure. Hidden gem? Classic? Not worth the trouble? You decide.

I put it at 5.12, could be between 12 a/b and 12c/d?

This is the second pitch of the route "Living with Abandon," which is identifiable as the route with new glue-ins behind the big leaning boulder at Northwest Territories. Big clean face up at the top of the cliff fixed with shiny glue-ins. Possible to do as one long pitch with a 70m rope with many possible ways to start.
