So I did the "way of life" route at Josh and I think I found a sick alt finish to the route some people might want to try. At the last bolt Im pretty sure most people are traversing over to the anchor. It is possible to make a tuff lock off move right at that last bolt and blast out a super long move up to a horizontal. It will put that last bolt at your left knee. Super rad move and I think it bumps the route up to a 5.12 grade line.

I dont know if it has been done because I kinda cleaned a bunch of dirt off of the holds up there and It did not look like they have been used before. When you traverse over on that horizontal the anchor will be at your hips. If this has been done before Im not trying to steal anybodys thunder just sharing a sick move on a great route. I enjoyed this thing and appreciate whoever put this thing up. I left a tick mark on the hold up there on that horizontal. Im curious to hear some feedback about this.

Either that or a bunch of dissing on me for climbing a sport route at J Tree.

Yeah I did. It did not go well, I fell on that fist Jam in that V cut and it did not come out. That thing ripped my hand open pretty bad. Dr. Rocktopolus

The alt finish Rob is talking about is pretty rad. I tried a few times, and failed... Tia managed to get it eventually. Long reach, especially for us vertically challenged folks. Strong move, and the hand rail traverse that Rob ticked out is fun. Nelson Day

No it's several moves, it takes a different slightly higher finish. It has one distinct hard move instead of the standard finish to the climb.

Thanks for your sarcasm, more would be appreciated for sure.
