One of the few routes on this cliff without a confusing name (did ya climb "Handy the Cantina Boy?"), The Kiss is a short, power-endurance route just left of Cantina Boy and right of Right El Sapper. It has supposedly cleaned up nicely over the years. So if you didn't like it 4 years ago, give it another try.


5 bolts.

The 4th bolt is in a hollow plate with a bunch of cracks in it, including a big open dirty one at the top. I WOULD NOT take a fall on this bolt, even though I've heard people say it's been like that for a while.
