The Day Saver description 

We hiked around for what seemed like hours in the hot sun trying to find a route. We relied on on our leader, who lead us in circles, and ended back at John's Tower. Exhausted, sweaty, and unmotivated, we stared at the wall hoping to find something to lift our spirits. Luckily, The Day Saver saved the day with a siren's song of first ascent glory.

Start off on thin, dicey, face climbing and grab a few shakes on some hand jams. Lieback up to a horizontal break and move left on flaring jams. Power up on side-pulls to a distant, marginal, finger lock. Fight the pump up a steep hand crack. Build an anchor with three pieces using skills you learned by reading "Freedom of the Hills" cover-to-cover. You will find bolted anchors about 45-50 feet to your right.


To be edited in.


Mostly thin and a #5 Camalot, which nicely protects the traverse left.

Nice find and sick sending by the FAers. Really fun route! Harder than it looks.
