Thin interesting face climbing.


This is the left most route that starts under the oaks next to a right facing corner that forms a sharp arete. Just left of Finders Keepers and Losers Weepers.


Bolts, anchors

Like all routes on this wall, Use It Or Lose It is long, thought-provoking, and mentally-engaging while being completely safe. Fortunately one can decipher sequences while standing on less-than-vertical bulges.

This is a great climb! Many tricky sequences, including a real heart-breaker mantle at the very end. Vague beta tip: you might find yourself wandering left and right a few feet to find the best sequences. Also, a 60 meter rope just barely gets you to the ground - if your rope is a bit short, the first 15ish feet could easily be down-climbed.

I thought this was a super fun route full of classic Mt Lemon style face climbing. This is my favorite style of climbing, the bolting is good, and the rock is excellent so I gotta give it 4-stars, even though the first 30 feet or so isn't quite up the standard of the rest of the climb. I think that it's among the best on the wall and highly recommended.
