Too Young To Be Human 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Grey Cliffs
I'm bored, and when I'm bored I find myself reminiscing about the good old days of climbing in AF. I loved the routes at the Grey Cliffs, and Too Young To Be Human is a perfect example why. Most of the holds on this route are good, but it is surprisingly pumpy. Start on the slab and climb up and right to a jug. From here, climb straight up the steep face with big moves between good pockets. It's classic. What more can I say?...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
