There was no High Life for me!


This is certainly one of the most fun climbs of the grade at Jacks. It starts with an excellent 5.11- section that moves into a featured flake where you can rest for as long as you want. The bolts fork above this, The High Life is the center line. Climb through the roof and finish on some 5.10 that feels pretty desperate if you're pumped.


In the center of the High Life Wall. Look for the pocketed flake halfway up the route.

Nice fun line. Couple of wasps in the flake this last weekend. Crux bulge is somewhat sustained with about 4 slightly less than positive jugs. Crux bolt is a tough one to hang the draw on. Heroic finish.
