This was a fairly popular route back in the early 80's, but seemed to lose it's popularity shortly thereafter. It is a fun route with interesting moves but needs a good cleaning. I haven't seen anyone on this route in 20+ years. Sticks and Stones is just to the left for a heart pounding!

Wow- 20 years. I always thought this was decent route at a moderate grade. not to many of those on Cathedral. Whack a Mole/ Sticks has had 3 ascents ? I must be real stupid 'cause I've done it twice

AP has been totally cleaned and restored to its original condition after three days of scrubbing. It is a really fun climb with reasonable (albeit spaced) gear with a pin at mid height. The 1/4" has been replaced. It has been seeing some traffic lately which is great to see! Give it a try and while you are at it, the 5.10 15' to the right of it is a great pitch too!

Thanks for cleaning this Chris. I did it today, first time in something like 28 years, and it climbed just as nice as I remembered it. There is only one pin at mid height and one bolt near the top; the first pro is a mid sized stopper or cam about 30 feet up and 6 feet below the pin, and a fall before that would not be pretty. Fortunately the moves are not bad.
