A good pitch that has some excellent wall-climbing and a perplexing finish, especially if the hard-to-see hold is missed.

Thought that this route was easier then It's My Life but the last move is definitely committing although there are some nice, juggy handholds above the lower off.

I think that the third bolt is missing from this climb, making it a long trip from the second bolt to the next clip-in.

Nope - it is runout, but was considered by the bolter to be "easy ground".

i i agree with David Penfold's comments. in the guide it says 4 bolts to lower off and yet there actually only 3.

i reckon if you fell between the 2nd and 3rd bolts you'd deck out such is the run-out...

The bolter he say that's all the bolts you need, you can always top-rope it to death first when noones looking and then impress the chicks with a casual ascent. Besides, the name says it all, you're on the wrong route!

I did this yesterday and admittedly it is runout but the climbing between 2nd and 3rd bolt is about F3 at the most.

It's a long way from a good hold on the right to the huge jugs above the lower off point.

Perhaps could do with a bolt in the middle, not quite sure you'd deck out, but would probably not be a nice landing on the initial ledge. Not the greatest of routes.

as mr damo said Do Ixtlan!

I recently did this and have to admit i was pleasantly surprised - nice route. Still think it would feel very run out if 5 was the top of your sports grade. Solid rock though so not much fear of ripping a hold off..
Wilbur - 21/Jun/05

Yep, runout but steady climbing to the 3rd bolt. Last few moves to the lower off make you think

A third bolt has been added to the belay: the lower horizontal staple is loose.
