This new route is an extension of the Living Slightly Larger roof, allowing it to continue into High Road to China via a harder than it looks 2 bolt traverse.

Strap on your knee pads, pull the improbable and wild moves on Living Slightly Larger, dive into a double knee bar rest then recompose for the final two large roofs and redpoint cruxes of High Road to China.

This route is just incredible and is the epitome of willow river's sport climbing style. A massive, daunting line that will leave you exhausted and smiling.


Shares the start of Living Slightly Larger, located just left of Brass Monkey / New Beginnings.


Lots of super long draws / slings to eliminate rope drag (13-15 total).
