Although most would consider this climb part of Bob Marley, it is really closer and easier to get to from the Chica Bonita crag. Simply hike as you would to Chica Bonita from the Drive By parking lot up the steep oil road. When you're at the top of the hill you'll come to a sign on your right that marks the Chica Bonita trail head. Instead of taking this trail, continue up the oil road another 100 yards or so and take a right on the next oil road. You'll go up another short hill and come to a clearing with an oil well near the cliff line. At this point you're very near the transition from Bob Marley into Chica Bonita. Continue left along the cliff line following a faint trail for about 75 yards. You'll run right into Tight Lipped and a few unnamed trad lines within a few minutes of easy hiking. You can also simply follow the cliff line once your at Chica Bonita to find a faint trail that takes you around the left corner of Chica Bonita and to this climb. It is only a few minutes and definitely worth a visit if you like technical, vertical climbing.

Thats a good looking climb

Really fun climb and stout movement after the 3rd bolt, I felt it was abit tougher than 11c, felt more like 11d/12a if you climb the bolt line straight up. Wankin out left makes it easier but you drift off line pretty quick and you still have to get back to clip, man up straight up and this route won't let you down

Tight Lipped 1 was so much better than the sequel

ah, nothing like a cold week in February to bring the boredom trolls.

Given Troy's comments and the one star, it sounds like its misbolted. Given it's Troy' s route, that seems like a fair guess.

Tight Lipped 1 is so good it's banned in 27 countries

Huh, I've climbed probably 20 of Troy's routes and bolting seemed spot on to me. What lines have you bolted and do actually think the trolls that vote one star have even seen the route?

only a wanker would bolt a contrived route and then give directions online how to climb it "like a man". masculinity issues Troy? while your lips are tightly around your ego, supersafeian's are tightly around your?

takes some fucking brains to reuse a route name at an area.

Heard that Troy is bolting on private property , he won't be shitting on any public/RRGCC climbs for awhile.

you mean "private"/federal property...

Sharp crimps, but overall potential to be a good climb. The placement of the last two bolts does make the route contrived. Moving these a few feet left to the natural line would make this a 3 star climb for sure.
