Description:


(FA Not published...Dennis Turville as per personal conversation)
Second bolted line to the right of lower falls. Immediately to the right of flee flicker
Lisa Falls: notorious for thin friction moves, and a great place to break in a new partner. This climb is listed in the book as having only 3 bolts. A 4th bolt was added by an unknown individual. Although adding bolts is considered unethical, this particular bolt might keep the unwitting from hitting the ground. The climbing is positive near the second(new) bolt, so I certainly respect those who feel the bolt should not have been added.

5 out of 5 stars Fleeting Glimpse

Crux is at the bottom, takes some working if you're new to granite like me. Awesome route!

3 out of 5 stars some fun footwork

There is some good footwork on this climb and some fun moves. It is a good introduction to Little Cottonwood Canyon Granite.

4 out of 5 stars Slick

My hands still hurt from crimping flakes through the crux. Better footwork makes for less strain on the joints.
