Climb the first 4 bolts of Romancing the Stone then break left in to the upper crack of Milksnake (5.10c) and finish with trad gear. This finish is less pumpy and a little more direct than the right hand traverse on Romancing the Stone. Climb up to the Milksnake anchors (they are set back so extend them for lowering or toproping). This is a better choice of TR climb than the regular Romancing due to the more direct line so you don't have to bother with directionals and all that.


Climb Romancing to the 4th bolt and head left and up the crack.


4 bolts, a small trad rack to anchors. Bring slings to extend the anchors.

I was told that this was actually the original finish to Romancing the Stone. Anyone have an information on this?
