Keep Hope Alive (5.10b), 8000 Foot Crag


Work up the short vertical face using underclings, sidepulls, jams and some hidden holds to finish up easy slab and the last 2 bolts on Community Service. A long sling is useful on the 4th bolt to keep the rope drag in check.

Useful as an approach pitch to El Rayo, which climbs cracks on the headwall right of Out of Sight.


Located between Community Service on the left and Talk to Me on the right.


3 bolts, open shuts (shared with Community Service)

The anchors for this route (and Community Service) should be moved several feet higher as they grind your rope when lowering.

Fun moves at the start that end all too quickly.
