Lee Cunningham, 1983
Gear to 2". A tiny blue alien is helpful if you choose to climb the right side of the flake.
Lazy Boy is located on the West (uphill) side of Lower Eight Mile Buttress in an area known as "The Bro's Nest." This area is also home to several hard sport climbs in the 5.11 - 5.13 range.
Start the route in an alcove 30 feet below a huge obvious flake. Trend right through a series of overhanging finger and hand jams until you reach the base of the flake. Two options are available here. The left side of the flake is the easiest, while the right side is harder, cooler but much scarier (several injuries have occurred from falls here). Both options end with a fun belly flop/mantle onto the top of the Lazy Boy flake.
Rest up here while you can, then tackle the pumpy, overhanging hand crack, with occasional finger locks, and stems to the top. A fantastic and challenging line!
Rappel off twin metolious rap hangers to the ground. Be sure to run the rope to the right of the upper crack to avoid rope jam. It is also possible to set up a fun rope swing using these anchors.
