left arm intensive routes?

Post by newtothis » Wed Oct 29, 2008 9:18 am

Anyone know of some good left arm intensive routes? I'm looking for ones that are not too hard and where I can give my right arm a break but still work my left real good. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

I think I get what this guy means. There is this SICK route at Smith Rocks called double trouble where every clip is with your left hand! Your right hand just gets pumped out its mind! Its amazing. We need more like that, but in this guys case, for the left hand.
all you haters die slow.

Well - there ya go. You have your choice of Brother Stair or a route at Smith Rock.

Have you thought about climbing slab? Sit on your left hand first, though.

Most routes in the red have been done with only one hand. Just be quick with the clips.

Climb facing away from the rock. That way your hands are automatically switched around. Also works your heels more this way. This will come in handy on that killer heel hook for your redpoint attempt on Creature Feature.

Thanks for all the constructive tips! For those with less tact, I don't have a masturbation problem, I just boulder really hard with my right arm most of the time when I'm in the gym.
Any other good routes? I'm looking for anything 5.10d and under.

hater. talk about a rock snob...got news for ya bubba...as ray has said, even bouldering V8-V10 and climbing 5.13's at the red ain't no news...so really, all of us are 5.10D climbers in disguise.
