Description 

A variation/link-up that I like better than the two routes it encounters.

Clip the first couple bolts on Drilling for Dollars 5.8 and rather than breaking left on that route climb straight up the corner (trad gear) to the anchor of To Love Honor and Belay. Some interesting balance moves on the upper section.

This line can be top roped after climbing To Love Honor and Belay.


Location 

Start on Drilling for Dollars. Finish on the To Love Honor and Belay anchor.


Protection 

normal rack to a two bolt anchor.

aka "Drilling for Love"

Where is the 5.9 crux of this route? I felt like the 5.9 part of to love honor and belay was in the first 20 feet above the ledge, but you would skip this part if you start on drilling... I'll have to check it out next time I'm there.
