Lee Sheftel on the first ascent of Just Say No To ...


An overhanging wall with monster pockets and some stellar climbing. The opening moves are a little tricky so don't blow the first clip as it is a horrible landing. Get the first bolt and let the fun pocket pumping begin, and then continue to the thin and tricky exit up onto a shelf. The crux is at the last bolt.


1st chalked up route to the left of Vasoconstrictor


4 bolts to a 2 bolt chained anchor. Stick clip recommended.

This route feels pretty hard at first. However, once the you start to dial the sequencing it lightens up a lot.

Also, the first two clips are pretty hairy. A stick clip or a really good spot would be advantageous.
