  • Description 

    Left of Tricks Are For Kids is a left-leaning seam that quickly disappears into blankness. Very difficult but semi-safe climbing leads well above the last protection to a 5.11X finish. A number of years ago I worked out the moves and the protection which is small but solid in the seam but non-existent after the crux.

    I am writing this route/project up to encourage anyone who is looking for a genuinely difficult, headpoint-style route in the Boulder area. I also want to discourage anyone from bolting this line as a top-rope is easily set up. This project will be quite difficult and fairly dangerous to lead. I think this is a great example of the kind of pitch that should not have bolts added.


    This is between Blues for Allah and Tricks are for Kids.


    Small stoppers, Aliens--best to work out the gear on rappel.
