Rolf just below the crux of Mid-Life Crisis.

This is a variation that combines the start of Out To Pasture with the finish of Arts and Krafts. It's actually a better climb than either of those routes, so it seems to deserve to be listed separately.

The crux comes shortly after the horizontal break, but the ankle-breaking potential is much less than on Out To Pasture. The technical nature of the climbing here is a lot of fun.


The climb takes the first four bolts of Out To Pasture and then traverses right along the horizontal break to finish up the last four bolts of Arts and Krafts.


about eight draws and a two-bolt anchor with rap rings
