OverviewFA: Greg Barnes, Bryan Law, George Ridgley September 2008.
A new three-pitch route on the left side of Lamb Dome, Five Ten, You Wuss climbs the right of the two black streaks left of the big corner on the left end of Lamb Dome.
The first pitch climbs up a ramp to horns, then left past a bolt to the black streak, up past overlaps, and then up funky, reachy friction bulges.
The second pitch is short, climbing up the face to a low-angle corner, then traversing left on a ledge to belay from gear in a scoop. Rope drag makes linking these pitches difficult. Tectonomagmatic can be used to approach this belay in a single long pitch.
The third pitch is a long pitch with face to corner to face, ending at the right end of the lower ledge at the top of the 4th class approach for On The Lamb. To the right of the 3rd pitch is a mysterious, unrecorded old route with a couple of very old ¼” bolts and homemade hangers, which was presumably approached from Dukey Corner and the big ledge.
