A Day In The Life

Description 

This route has sustained crimps throughout, and is slightly overhanging. A very fun start leads to a great pump as you keep climbing. Near the end you have the option of some more small crimps or a dynamic dead point. Either way you finish, this route is solid for the grade and a very enjoyable climb.

Location 

Begin by starting at the small tree/bush and climbing out the right side of the pod in the middle of the wall. Continue up to the anchors through a series of crimps.

Protection 

Several bolts to the chain anchors.

well, the guy in the photos is vertically challenged- under 5'6", if i recall (just how short are you, art?)....

i remember that route being annoying at the start, but once you got past the 2nd bolt, it wasnt too bad. dont recall it being overly reachy, though.

i'm 5'9 and found no issues with this route. there is definitely no need to dyno. I enjoyed the movement, especially the start. just smear right and use that pinch feature for balance as you reach up out of the dish to the start of the juggies.

Found the route to be quite techy and sequency. I think I was able to skip that big hold way out right after the dish. Dont think its necessary and might even throw you off sequence.

On 1/29/11 the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced the second pro bolt on this climb with a 1/2 x 2.75 SS 5-piece bolt.

On 12/5/13, the ASCA replaced the anchor on this route with 1/2" x 4.5" SS 5-piece bolts and equipped them with quicklinks for rappel.

Check your ass between the second and third clips, I fell and hit the ledge behind the climb full force. I was fine, but now have a bruised ass.
