I found this climb to be easier than the 5.8s to the right (especially Unemployment Line, which has a hard start). Like the climbs to its right, this one gets easier the higher you go. One of the more clever route names on the mountain.


Second climb on left-hand wall, first line with bolts all the way down. Just right of ramp.


Feels Like Someone Else is a mixed route, meaning it is intended to be climbed with both traditional gear and quickdraws. While climbing it as a pure sport route is possible there could be serious consequences if the climber falls due to error or poor rock. Either way use caution.

Bolts, gear, and chains.

there's 25' of 5.8 crack just to the left of this line that protects well. just get back on the bolt line after the ledge...or you can run it out into ground fall range on 5.7 terrain to a micro nut placement 10' below the chains for a line that protects solely on clean gear. i personally lack the testicular fortitude for such a venture though.

This one seems easier than the 2 to the right of it. Only because of the first move on the other 2 though.

Parts of this are run out. The climbing on those parts are 5.7 type stuff, but if you slip, it could be a big drop and clipping a ledge is a definite possibility.

Historical footnote: First ascensionist must've been a Michael Hurley fan...

Have to take credit for the names since Fowler didn't. Don't know who Hurley is but I am definitely a fan of the left hand wall.

I slotted a yellow Alien in a shallow crack below the last two moves on the route. A little run out, but still a good climb.
