Near the end of Big Bertha (5.6) at the Barkeater ...
Haven't a clue as to the origin of the route's name, but what the heck, it's fun, requires some interesting--but not mandatory--butt-scumming, and is within tickling-distance to "Mr. Clean", so why not climb it?!
This is the ramp-like crack system that meanders its' way up the cliff just to the left of the "Mr. Clean" corner. Climbing this to a fun high step into, and through, a V-notch. Continue up the low-angle crack system to chain anchors.
10 feet to the left of "Mr. Clean".
A rack including some small pieces...nothing larger than a yellow Camalot.

According to the Adirondack Rock guide book, the name comes from the name given to a large block precariously perched atop the climb. This block has since been pried off and now lives at the base of the climb.
