Coming up over the pillar.


This route is to the right of the popular Shute-Mills, which is the first face you encounter when you arrive at the Far Side. "Livin'on a Prayer" climbs the detached tower to the right of shute Mills, gains the ledge and continues up the pocketed face on excellent rock. You can stem and and lie-back up the lower pillar while pasting feet out left. This is an old top rope line that was recently bolted. The rock was slimy from winter storms during the February "first" ascent and the name came from a hit song on Bon Jovi's 1986 album Slippery When Wet that we could NOT get out of our heads. Go ahead, que the music and sing along as you send.


There are five bolts on this route and rap rings at the anchor.
