Britta grabbin' a lap on Life Without Sex


This route has an interesting bulge right at the first clip. The next 3 bolts or so cover easy ground to a final steep juggy wall.


This route is the line of bolts just left of Another Jay Goodwin Route.


7 bolts, give or take. Fixed anchors at the top.

Not sure why the guidebook describes it as a line of minimal interest. Maybe the low angle easy slab that makes the second third of the route and breaks the continuity? Either way, the lower bulge is funky and powerful and the upper slab is thin and techy with a friction finish. The homemade hanger on the 3rd bolt is worth a look...

Definitely some confusion in the guidebook. The route description for Sex, drugs, and Rock & Roll sounds much more suitable: "Bolts. Finishes up steep patina face."

The book says that these two bolted lines are located between the 5.8 on the left, and the 10c on the right, but I could only spot one line of bolts. I assumed that this route was "Sex, drugs, and rock & roll", and that "life without sex" was a mistake in the guidebook.

This climb was switched with "Sex, Drugs, etc." in the 2009 edition of the City guide. The descriptions here are for "Sex, Drugs, etc.", not "Life without Sex".

The 5.8 crack/dike is Jay Goodwin's "Preteen Sex".

Sex, drugs,etc is clearly identified by it's upper patina headwall.
