  • Description 

    More direct, 2-pitch variation to Touch and Go.

    P1 (5.9+): climb Rat's Tooth to bolted anchors.
    P2 (5.10a) climb Hungover Hangover, the short, slightly overhanging hand crack to bolted anchors.
    P3 (5.7): head left to Empty Sky arete (somewhat runout), or continue straight up the dihedral to Lizard Ledge.
    P4 (5.6): choose any of the finishes off Lizard Ledge.


    Between One Hand Clapping and Cannibal Gully. Walkoff, or you can rap the route if you really want to.


    Gear to 3.5". Fixed anchors on each pitch. Empty Sky pitch (above Hungover Hangover) has 2 bolts and some small gear.

    Great link up but as I recall P3 was definitely 10a till you arrive at the arete. When we did Touch n Go, we traversed over to the 5.7 arete of Empty Sky, bypassing the lower bolts. Hope this helps.

    Agreed wtih Laine on this one. Its a great link up and while the second pitch and third pitch are very different in nature (overhanging hand crack, and slightly run out slab) they are both .10 in difficulty. The bolted slab on the arete is slightly run out .10, if you go straight up I've heard that's 5.7, but I've never done it so can't comment.
