To reach this route, hike into the [Gallery Canyon] and make your way up to the [Menses Prow]. Hike left (west) past the [California Ethics Pinnacle] approximately 100 yards. There will be a 15 foot ledge on the south facing wall. Scramble onto this ledge. Liquid Affair is the 3rd route from the right.

This is a great route for your first (or second ...) onsight, because the crux is early, brief, and very straightforward. Crank through thin pockets and edges past a couple bolts. Easier terrain lies above. Most people head slightly right to "Love Pump's" anchors. An alternative to this is to trend left and upwards to the anchors atop "Thirteen Engines".


5 bolts (if you go to Love Pump's anchors).

Once again, my mistake on the route grade. This should be 5.11b.

If I remember correctly the crux of Thirteen Engines is above the last bolt of this line. Thus, deviating left is certainly a lot harder than going right.
