BETA PHOTO: Approaching crux (circa 2003).


A fun route. However, be ready. Moderately overhung with generous holds, it lulls many into thinking its a typical RRG jughaul...only to be spanked near the top.


Located almost at the extreme east end of Lady Slipper-Global Village. Follow trail along crag past several bolted sport routes to a corner. Loosen Up ascends the steep face JUST LEFT of this corner (see photo).


6 bolts.

New SS bolts as of 8/2012

Anchors are rusty as hell but bolts are good. Three anchors (two quicklinks, one chain). Middle quicklink is rusty and grooved. Can equalize between all three with draws if not confident . Rap through right quicklink and left chain.

First and second clip easy some scouting, runout between 2-3, and last to anchors. Get your head straight for the push to the anchors.
