Where 'Alternative Lifestyle' is run out at the top...this is run out at the bottom AND the top.

The first 20 meters is a traverse with your feet in a good deep crack and some occasional options for your hands. the trees wrapping around the bottom of the face will catch you when you fall...but from experience, don't fall here. the trees will catch you, but you don't want that between your legs; nor do you want the EXTRA fall to the ground from the bottom of this face. (undercut is an understatement)

tip toeing (as the book suggests) is about right, the route is super fun...the start can be a bit nerve racking if you are not yet a fan of slab or this climb is at the peak of your climbing level.

for the slab will enjoy this route immensely.


Passion Slab (Track 5) 20 meters past the 'fortress'. There are four climbs, the first two you come to are always covered in moss. The third is 'Alternative Lifestyle' and this route being the fourth you may not be able to see, but shares the same start as 'AL'
