A classic is born...... This climb is legitimately one of the best and most unique easy 5.12s in Southern Arizona.

A Climb Called Quest shares the first three bolts of Life in Color before branching right and climbing to the very top of the cliff via an amazing blank and puzzling dihedral and featured slab above.

This climb is full value beginning with long pulls up ledgy terrain which leads to face climbing on amazing sculpted edges and pinches (don't miss the 'Juice Box') that take you right up to the base of an imposing dihedral. Solve the corner via palms, foot smears, desperate stemming and any trickery you can muster. At the top of the corner you can kick back and relax as 30 more feet of bullet slab with amazing inset chert holds take you to the very top of the cliff at the DRY.


Right variation of Life in Color.


14 bolts to chains with lower-offs.
