BETA PHOTO: Area in and around A Touch Too Much

Description 

Begin as for Touch And Go. Climb Touch And Go through its crux and clip the 2nd bolt with a long runner. Move up underneath the flake to a good stance with a left sidepull. Make a long reach right to a crack and solid finger-lock that you can't see. Step all the way out right, get gear and climb the crack and flake up to a good ledge. Climb the face above on thin crimps and edges past two bolts and gear placements. Finish up to the top on easy ledges to a two-bolt anchor.

Rap back off, walk-off Lower Broadway or head up to Upper Broadway by walking along the ledge to climber's right; this leads to the easy ledge system near the Upper Broadway Chimney.


Location 

Same as for Touch And Go. Easiest to rap in from Lower Broadway Ledge, just beyond the Lower Broadway Chimney.


Protection 

4 bolts, gear to 1" (emphasis on C3s, TCUs, etc) - PG rating for the moves up and out past the 2nd bolt. Two-bolt rap anchor at the top.

Had the pleasure of climbing this with the first ascensionists the day after it was completed. Sweet route. Harder than what I normally climb so I can't honestly give it a grade, but 10+ sounds about right to me. Very cool moves through the lower half lead to some thin face climbing higher up. Definitely a worthwhile climb if your into mixed bolt/gear routes.
