I too enjoyed a Date with Disappointment

This route is hard. Start with a 25 ft solo up to the first bolt. From here meander up 5.10 slab climbing for another 4 bolts. When you find yourself face to face with the steeper rock above get ready to use underclings, slimpers, razor crimps and slopers to clip the next 3 bolts. My belayer and I both ripped open our pads on the right hand sidepull up high. Get ready to hate these holds worse than your prom date's dad.


Start from the same platform that The Upheaval starts from but on the left side of it with a very high first bolt. Lower from the anchors.


8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

if worried about height of first bolt, a yellow alien protects moves before the clip... though if you sketch here...might not be ready for the route
