Respect Your Elders climbs the steep corner and flake system on the right side of the main wall. Begin with easy ledges to a series of jugs to a hand-sized cam placement in the top of the initial corner. Clip a bolt at the lip of a small roof, then do a powerful sequence right to establish below the next left-facing corner. Steep jams and laybacks lead to a series of technical moves past two more bolts and then more moderate climbing up a larger corner. A final exposed and thrilling move leads one right around the roof to a ledge with a bolted anchor.


Three bolts and a set of cams from very small (gray Metolius) to hand-sized. Bring 2 each in the 0.5" to 1.25" range and a few medium to large nuts.

Very cool and unique climb. A bit scary for me. There is a good green BD cam between bolts 1 and 2.
