Maura Hahnenberger on Adolescent Homosapien.
AKA: Adolescent Homosapien. Adolescent Homosexual climbs the obvious long hand and finger crack on the west side of Lower Breadloaf. Great continuous climbing leads to the crux just below the top of the climb. An extremely popular route on an extremely popular wall. Walk left a few feet and rap from anchor's near the top of Double Crack.
Pro to 3".

Is this the climb that used to be called Adolescent Homo?

Great route. I highly recommend it, especially for those just getting into leading. The pro is mostly casual, and only one real crux (at the top).

This isn't any harder than 5.7, for sure., but I wouldn't recommend it to a new lead. Although you wouldn't fall far, you would have ledge fall at the crux.

Great climb and great gear, I don't remember any part of this climb that was poorly protected, including the upper portion.

Great climb and great gear. Crux is up high and can be protected pretty well with camalot C3s or stoppers. A great first trad lead for those comfortable at the grade. Seemed easier than a lot of 5.7s in Little Cottonwood, UT.

A fun route. The 5.7 rating is a bit generous. I'd say easy 5.6.

Definitely a 5.7 in my opinion. The crux at the top is a bit tricky, but as other commenting peeps have mentioned, it protects well. Great climb though! Rapped off the bolts to the left with a 70m.

If you climb the big offwidth/chimney to the left either with some big gear like the Trango Big Bros or on TR off your anchor for Adolescent it makes a really nice 5.8ish variation. It is a friendly and easy introduction to that style of climbing.
